Siavush Randjbar-Daemi, a lecturer in Iranian history at Britain's University of Manchester, predicted "a very, very testing next few months" for the regime.

"On the one hand it has succeeded in preventing these protests getting out of hand and contained them to a great extend and they did not achieve critical mass in terms of numbers," Randjbar-Daemi said. "However, I do not think the feeling of dissent toward the regime and level of disgust for the political and economic situation has gone away."
