World, As Seen from the most beautiful islands: Ireland and Cyprus

UN urges Iran to limit violence after killing in protests


The United Nations (UN) voiced their concerns on Tuesday about Iranian security forces who were shooting at demonstrators. According to the High Commissioner for Human Rights, dozens of people have died in the country since the protests began.

Since Friday there have been demonstrations in Iran against higher fuel prices. Iranian news agencies and social media commentators describe how demonstrators in different places in Iran are calling slogans against the government and blocking roads.

The UN also calls on Iran to give citizens access to the internet, which is no longer accessible to everyone since Saturday. In addition, the UN asks the country to restore the right to freedom of expression and freedom of assembly.

Some of the protests ended with violence on Sunday. Social media showed images of burning government buildings and clashes between demonstrators and the security services.

Grootayatollah Ali Khamenei condemned the protesters on Sunday and stated that they have been “sabotaged” by enemies from abroad.

“Some people will have doubts about the decision to raise fuel prices, but sabotage and arson are being carried out by rig, not by our people,” he said according to Iranian state television.
