How will Iran react to protests over Mahsa Amini’s death? What we know

  • The murder of Mahsa Amini in Iran has sparked protests across the country.
  • As the protests spread, the Iranian government blocked access to the internet and some data services.
  • On September 22, the United States sanctioned assets belonging to senior members of Iran’s “morality police.”

In Tehran, “Death to the dictator” was the refrain of protesters as they marched angrily through the streets. In Mashhad, they set fire to a police car and chanted, “Our foolish leader is our shame. In Kerman, they clashed with riot security forces and shouted, “Khamenei is a murderer, his rule sucks.”
