Protests escalate across Iran over young woman’s death after morality police arrest

Protests continued across Iran for a fifth consecutive night over the death of Mahsa Amini, a young woman said to have been severely beaten by the morality police.

Protesters took to the streets in 15 cities across Iran, blocking traffic, setting fire to garbage cans and police vehicles, throwing stones at security forces and chanting anti-government slogans, the state-run news agency Irna reported on Wednesday.
Police used tear gas and made arrests to disperse the crowd, the agency said.

Women, many of whom had removed their headscarves, and men gathered in Tehran and other major cities in the country, including Mashhad, Tabriz, Rasht, Isfahan, and Kish, the agency added.
