Death toll rises to at least 12 in Iran protestsAt least a dozen people have died in four days of protests in Iran -- including 10 on Sunday night, state TV reported Monday.

In Tehran, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said the protests are bringing attention to economic problems in the nation and that leaders should "should listen to this voice and turn it into an opportunity."

The Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting reported several people have been injured since the protests began Thursday in Iran's second-largest city, Mashhad, on rising prices and financial corruption.

Mashallah Nemati, the governor of Doroud in Lorestan province, said two residents died Sunday in a car crash caused by rioters. He said a firefighting vehicle was seized by rioters and crashed into another car, in which a man and a young boy were killed, ISNA reported.
