Unrest in Iran over death of Mahsa Amini, 26 killed

Protesters across Iran continued to clash violently with security forces early Friday following the death of a young woman in police custody. Iranian state TV suggested the death toll from the unrest could be as high as 26, without offering details.

Although the scope of the protests across some dozen Iranian cities and towns remains unclear, the movement, in response to the death of Mahsa Amini last week after she was arrested by the country's morality police, represents the widest unrest since 2019, when rights groups said hundreds of people were killed in a violent crackdown.

Iran has also disrupted internet access to the outside world, according to internet traffic monitor Netblocks, and tightened restrictions on popular platforms used to organize rallies like Instagram and WhatsApp.
