Iran Proteste eskalieren

By Jordi Bou

October 27, 2022 - Irans klerikale Regierung erlebt die schwersten Proteste seit Demonstrationen der Regierungsgegner vor sechs Wochen nach dem Tod der 22-jährigen Mahsa Amini auf die Straßen gingen. Mahsa ist in Polizeigewahrsam verstorben, sie wurde verhaftet, weil Sittenpolizei ihre "unangemessene Kleidung" kritisierte.

Tens of thousands of people took to the streets in all major cities, as well as other places where demonstrations had subsided recently.

The escalation came after protesters marked 40 days since Amini died, sparking the unrest.

It is the most serious challenge to the Islamic republic since its inception.

Norway-based Iran Human Rights says at least 234 protesters, including 29 children, have been killed by security forces in crackdowns so far. Iran's leaders have portrayed the unrest as "riots" fomented by foreigners.
