15 anti-regime protesters killed in Iran

Protests across Iran

The previous day, Rohani had warned demonstrators about violence during a nationwide address after security service vehicles and other public property was destroyed or damaged. "Our nation will deal with this minority who chant slogans against the law and people's wishes, and insult the sanctities and values of the revolution".

In the latest development, state TV reported that six rioters were killed during an attack on a police station in the town of Qahdarijan when they tried to steal guns from the facility.

Six people were reportedly killed by gunfire in the western town of Tuyserkan, and a local lawmaker said two people had been shot dead in the south-western town of Izeh.

Video posted on social media showed demonstrators attacking a police station in the central town of Qahderijan. Iran has seen its largest anti-government protests since the disputed presidential election in 2009. "It's unclear how this is happening from town to town, except through social media".

More than 400 people have been arrested in the four days of protests.

The protests began as demonstrations against economic conditions in Mashhad but quickly turned against the government, with thousands marching in towns across Iran to chants of "Death to the dictator".

US President Donald Trump, who has been tweeting in support of the protesters, continued into the New Year, describing Iran as 'failing at every level despite the awful deal made with them by the Obama Administration'. Iranians were hoping for improved living conditions following the nuclear deal and the lifting of some worldwide sanctions.

More than twenty people have died after another bloody night of protests in Iran added nine people to the death toll. "They're also demanding more freedoms", said Rowhani, in an indirect slam on regime hardliners who oppose his attempts to push through political and cultural reforms, during an emergency security summit.

He warned that Iran will use its right to reciprocate the enemies' hostile moves in a way that they will regret their deeds.

Iran is failing at every level despite the awful deal made with them by the Obama Administration.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson called for a meaningful debate about the protesters' issues and said on Facebook that "the United Kingdom is watching events in Iran closely".

'We regret the loss of life that has occurred in the protests in Iran, and call on all concerned to refrain from violence and for worldwide obligations on human rights to be observed, ' he said.

Mr Rouhani had dismissed Mr Trump's earlier comments on Sunday.

Both applications are popular among Iranians and useful in helping set up gathering points for demonstrators who are disappointed with rising prices and Rohani's unfulfilled promises to guarantee rights to freedom of expression and assembly.

The anti-government rallies were also countered by equally massive pro-government demonstrations.

"It's clear there's a kind of discontent that's sweeping Iran over broad issues".

He criticized the Iranian regime's response to the protests and also blamed European governments for watching "in silence" as the protests turn violent.

The Intelligence Ministry said in a statement that "rioters and instigators" had been identified "and will be dealt with seriously soon".
