March 2 (Bloomberg) -- Farmers in central Iran clashed with police during a protest over the government’s decision to divert water to a neighboring province, leaving several people injured, the AP said, citing Iranian media.

The semiofficial Mehr news agency said today that the farmers agreed to hold talks with government officials to resolve the dispute that flared during a Wednesday protest.

Farmers in the Isfahan province of Varzaneh smashed a pipeline carrying water from Zayandeh Rood River to Yazd province. The farmers said they need the water because of a prolonged drought. Isfahan province has recently been the scene of sporadic rallies over water rights, AP said.
