Looks like more than 100.

Those who have been arrested in the past, are replaced by others.
I wish I didn't feel so helpless.

Regarding the protests. I was also wondering if there is a bias towards the Iranian student movement in the western news media? For instance an AP dispatch in USA Today goes like this:

" TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — An estimated 100 students staged a rare demonstration Monday against Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, calling him a "dictator,"...."

or the same release on Yahoo News:

A photo from an Iranian blog obviously shows many hundreds more than the one hundred reported by Associated Press:

BBC though puts the number this way: "There were scuffles as hundreds of supporters and opponents of the president gathered outside the venue...."
