Iranian women wave their hijabs over their heads as they rally in a street in Ahwaz, Iran, in this video posted September 30, 2022. Leaked government documents show that Iran ordered its security forces to "severely confront" anti-government demonstrations that broke out earlier this month, Amnesty International said Friday. The London-based rights group said security forces have killed at least 52 people since protests over the death of a woman detained by the morality police began nearly two weeks ago, including by firing live ammunition into crowds and beating protesters with batons. It says security forces have also beaten and groped female protesters who remove their headscarves to protest the treatment of women by Iran's theocracy. The state-run Islamic Republic News Agency, meanwhile, reported renewed violence in the city of Zahedan, near the borders with Pakistan and Afghanistan. It said gunmen opened fire and hurled firebombs at a police station, setting off a battle with police. It said police and passersby were wounded, without elaborating, and did not say whether the violence was related to the anti-government protests. The region has seen previous attacks on security forces claimed by militant and separatist groups. https://www.voanews.com/a/amnesty-iran-ordered-forces-to-severely-confront-protests-/6770479.html » Subscribe to VOA News: https://bit.ly/3KIPysi » Watch more VOA News video: https://www.youtube.com/c/VOANews Voice of America (VOA) is the largest U.S. international broadcaster, providing news and information in more than 40 languages to an estimated weekly audience of 236.8 million people.
