Judiciary spokesman: 25 people killed in recent street protests

IRNA – Judiciary spokesman Gholamhossein Mohseni Ejei said on Sunday that some 400 who were arrested in recent street protests are in custody and the total number of those killed during the period stood 25.

Speaking to reporters on his weekly press briefing, he said none of these people were killed by the fire of security forces and out of those under arrest some 50 are from Tehran.

Some other people also have been identified and arrested as their leaders who had contact with the aliens overseas, he said.

During the recent unrest in Iran, which began with criticism of economic hardships and turned into violent riots due to foreign interventions, the US officials, including President Donald Trump, rushed to provoke the protesters by tweeting, commenting on media and asking for UN Security Council emergency meeting.
