Thousands of hard-liners in Iran have gathered at the former U.S. Embassy in Tehran to protest against the Iranian regime’s recent deal with world powers over its contested nuclear program.

Hard-liners carried banners Saturday accusing Hassan Rouhani and the nation’s nuclear negotiation team of “giving up Iran’s right in return for little.”
Rouhani has faced criticism from hard-liners over the deal struck in November, which they refer to as a “poison chalice.”
The West fears Iran’s nuclear program could allow it to build nuclear weapons.
