SERAMBINEWS.COM, TEHRAN – Iranian demonstrations broke out against Mahsa Amini’s death and killed at least 36 people, says New York-based rights group ICHRI.

The death of Mahsa Amini, 22, came last week after her arrest by the country’s moral police for wearing the hijab inappropriately. News of his death sparked widespread outrage.

The moral police is a special police unit that enforces strict dress codes for Iranian women, including the obligation to wear the hijab.

According to government records, the death toll rose to at least 17 as of Thursday (22/9/2022), including five security personnel.

However, the New York-based Center for Human Rights of Iran (ICHRI) said its sources put the figure much higher.

“On the 7th day of IranProtest , officials acknowledged at least 17 deaths with independent sources saying 36,” CHRI said on Twitter late Thursday (22/9/2022).

“The number is expected to increase. World leaders should put pressure on Iranian officials to allow protests without lethal action,” he continued, quoted by the AFP news agency.

Since Mahsa Amini’s death on September 16, 2022, three days after she was arrested in Tehran by the moral police, Iranian demonstrations have broken out in the majority of major city centers including the capital Tehran, Isfahan, Mashhad, Rasht and Saqez.

“The government responded with live ammunition, pellet guns and tear gas, according to videos shared on social media which also showed protesters bleeding profusely,” ICHRI said.

There were also photos of protesters vandalizing or burning portraits of Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and the late Revolutionary Guards commander Qasem Soleimani. This has never happened before.
