In Iran, Amnesty International says security forces killed over 100 protesters during ongoing nationwide demonstrations sparked by a sudden hike in fuel prices last week. The report also warns the death count may be much higher, with some suggesting as many as 200 have been killed. On Thursday, Iran announced a rise in the cost of gas ranging from 50% to 300%. On Sunday, soon after the protests broke out, Iran imposed an almost complete internet blackout. We’ll have more on the Iranian protests later in the broadcast.
