At least 50 people killed in Iran protest crackdown

Iran, 24/9: At least 50 people have been killed in a crackdown by the Iranian security forces on protests that erupted following the death of Mahsa Amini while in the custody of the morality police, an NGO said on Friday.



The Oslo-based Iran Human Rights (IHR) NGO said the rise in the toll came after six people were killed by fire from the security forces in the town of Rezvanshahr in the northern Gilan province Thursday night. Other deaths were recorded in Babol and Amol, also in northern Iran.
