‘They are massacring people’: Iran demos intensify in Kurdish city

Human rights activists expressed concern at the crackdown on protests taking place in Sanandaj, a Kurdish-populated area in western Iran.

The violence has been particularly intense in the city where police were accused of using live ammunition against protesters.

Since September’s death of Mahsa Alimini, protests against the clerical establishment have spread across Iran.

After being held in Tehran by the morality police for violating strict hijab laws, Mahsa Amini (a Kurdish female from Saqqez) fell into a coma.
