Iran protests: Massacre fears in Kurdish city

Estimated read time 1 min read


Human rights activists have expressed alarm at a crackdown on protests in the Kurdish-populated city of Sanandaj in western Iran.

Violence has been especially intense in the city, where Amnesty International said there were reports that security forces had used firearms indiscriminately.

Demonstrations against the clerical establishment have swept across Iran since the death of Mahsa Amini in September.

Mahsa Amini, a Kurdish woman from the western city of Saqqez, fell into a coma after being detained by morality police in Tehran for allegedly violating the strict hijab law.
