Thousands of Iranians chanted “Death to America” on the anniversary on Monday of the 1979 seizure of the US Embassy in a jab at moderate President Hassan Rouhani as he tries to ease tension with Washington and resolve the nuclear dispute.

Large crowds gathered around the embassy building dubbed the “nest of spies” in the local press, holding up anti-US placards and shouting “Death to America,” a standard refrain since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
