Turkish officials on Wednesday saidIran's President Hassan Rouhani told his Turkish counterpart during a phone call that he hopes the protests "will end in a couple of days". They are virtually in every city in Iran.
Meanwhile, the American ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, said the United States called for the UN Security Council and Human Rights Council to meet to discuss the situation in Iran.
"We have no information yet whether it was protesters or the police that fired yesterday [Sunday] and the issue is under investigation", the report quoted him as saying.
On the fourth day of the largest protests since an uprising over disputed election results in 2009, Iranian protesters chanted "Death to the dictator!" as they tore down posters of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who holds absolute authority in Iran.
By expressing solidarity with them, President Trump is helping to embolden a heroic people against a dictatorship which is aligned not only against its own people but also the United States.
Social media videos purport to show clashes between protesters and police in several areas.
The anti-regime protests in Iran enters in its second week.
The rising death toll comes as spontaneous demonstrations have swept across Iran since last Thursday, when economic protests swiftly turned political and took aim at the government.
The violence has killed at least 21 people and seen hundreds more arrested by authorities.
Analysts have suggested hardliners in Mashhad organized the protests against their rival Rouhani, but that the protests then unexpectedly spread into a backlash against the entire regime. The demonstrations appear to have caught Iran's leadership off guard.
Despite a billion dollars released to Iran by the United States, inflation is worsening and unemployment remains high among young people.
The protests appear to have been sparked by social media posts and a surge in prices of basic food supplies, such as eggs and poultry.
The tense situation at Tehran University will be a litmus test for the strength of the protest movement and of the regime's ability to contain, suffocate, or crush the protests. "Neither Gaza nor Lebanon, my life will only be sacrificed for Iran", one chant reportedly went.Independent reports of the number of demonstrators and protest locations are hard to come by.
All Iranian officials with whatever political persuasions have insisted the people's right to protest should be recognized. The world is watching!
Washington will seek emergency sessions at the United Nations to express support for the protesters, Haley said, adding that the worldwide community had failed to support reformist protests in 2009 that were crushed by Tehran.
Some of the new protests have specifically denounced the regime's extensive corruption and its costly involvement in regional conflicts, such as those in Syria and Iraq.
State TV also said some protesters chanted the name of Iran's one-time shah, who fled into exile just before its 1979 Islamic Revolution. Iran's leaders violently snuffed out the protest anyway.
There is widespread and seething discontent in Iran where repression is pervasive and economic hardship is getting worse - one BBC Persian investigation has found that on average Iranians have become 15% poorer in the past 10 years. Rouhani has dismissed Trump's criticisms, while many Iranians remain angry with the American president over his travel bans barring them from getting US visas, as well as his refusal to re-certify the nuclear deal. But the protests might soon be quelled, dissolve into competing camps led by rival leaders, or be hijacked by hostile anti-Western forces, as numerous Arab Spring revolts were hijacked. In October, Trump declined to certify to Congress that staying in the nuclear deal was in America's interest even though the International Atomic Energy Agency repeatedly has said that Iran has complied with the agreement.
