Videos Emerge of Iran’s Bloody Crackdown Against Protesters

HeadlineNov 27, 2019

In Iran, videos of the Iranian security forces’ violence against protesters are emerging online, as Iran has partially restored internet access, which was almost entirely blocked for over a week. Amnesty International says over 100 people were killed in the crackdown against demonstrations sparked by a sharp rise in gas prices earlier this month. U.S. sanctions against Iran have contributed to the economic crisis. Iranian officials now say internet access in the country could be curtailed indefinitely.
