Last night and today, November 10 and 11, the residents of Ahvaz, Shadegan and Kut-e Abdollah (southwestern Khuzestan Province), poured onto the streets to protest against the suspicious murder of an Ahvazi poet, Hassan Heidari.
Sunday evening, the people of Ahvaz, Shadegan and Kut-e Abdollah set fires, put up barricades, and blocked the streets in protest. The young people clashed with the anti-riot forces dispatched to suppress the protests. In some parts of Kut-e Abdollah smoke from burning tires has filled the air.
