    TEHRAN, Dec. 20 — As protests broke out last week at a prestigious university here, cutting short a speech by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Babak Zamanian could only watch from afar. He was on crutches, having been clubbed by supporters of the president and had his foot run over by a motorcycle during a less publicized student demonstration a few days earlier. But the significance of the confrontation was easy to grasp, even from a distance, said Mr. Zamanian, a leader of a student political group. The student movement, which planned the 1979 seizure of the American Embassy from the same...
