More protesters killed in clashes with Iran police as unrest spirals after woman's death

BBC, 22 Sep 2022
Battles between Iranian police and anti-government protesters in Iran are now in their seventh day, in the worst unrest the country has seen for years.

Protests are continuing in Theran and many other cities following the death of 22-year old Mahsa Amini while she was detained by morality police.

Activists say eight protesters were shot dead overnight, while news outlets said two paramilitaries were killed.

State media have reported the deaths of 11 people, including security personnel and protesters, but Kurdish human rights groups have said that 15 protesters have died in western Iran alone.
