Fiery unrest across Iran following death of Mahsa Amini

Fiery unrest across iran following death of mahsa amini

Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “Fiery unrest across Iran following death of Mahsa Amini” – below is their description.

Fiery unrest prevails across cities in Iran following Mahsa Amini’s killing. People took to the streets in large numbers to protest ‘oppression’ and high-handed behaviour of religious police under the Ayatollah regime.

Mahsa Amini, 22, died in custody after she was detained in Tehran by Iranian morality police who believed she was wearing her hijab too loosely. Demonstrations continued for a tenth night in a row this evening, in defiance of a warning from the judiciary, with violent unrest having spread to at least 46 cities, towns and villages across Iran following her death. Hundreds of demonstrators, reformist activists and journalists have been arrested amid the mostly night-time protests since unrest first broke out after Amini’s death on September 16. At least 41 people have died since the unrest began – including both protesters and some members of the Islamic republic’s security forces – according to an official toll, although other sources say the real figure is higher.

In This Story: Iran

Iran, also called Persia, officially the Islamic Republic of Iran, is a country in Western Asia. Its central location in Eurasia and proximity to the Strait of Hormuz give it significant geostrategic importance. Tehran is the capital and largest city.

Iran is home to one of the world’s oldest civilizations, beginning with the formation of the Elamite kingdoms in the fourth millennium BC. The Iranian Revolution established the current Islamic Republic in 1979.

Iran’s political system combines elements of a presidential democracy and an Islamic theocracy. Iran is a founding member of the UN, ECO, OIC, and OPEC. It is a major regional and middle power and has large reserves of fossil fuels — including the world’s largest natural gas supply and the third largest proven oil reserves.

The country’s rich cultural legacy is reflected in part by its 22 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Historically a multi-ethnic country, Iran remains a pluralistic society comprising numerous ethnic, linguistic, and religious groups, the largest being Persians, Azeris, Kurds, Mazandaranis and Lurs.
