Hardline Iranian cleric Ahmad Khatami addresses worshippers in a sermon at Tehran university and calls for leading "rioters" to be executed.
In a sermon broadcast on Iranian state media outlet IRIB, Khatami , said the judiciary should charge the leading "rioters" as being "mohareb" or one who wages war against God.
Under Iran's Islamic law, punishment for people convicted as mohareb is execution.
The authorities have used a combination of warnings, arrests and the threat of police action to drive large demonstrations off Tehran's streets since multiple protests erupted in the wake of the disputed presidential election that saw moderate former Prime Minister Mirhossein Mousavi beaten by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
