IRAN: Anti-Regime Protest After Police Kill Young Man in Zahedan
By Shahriar Kia
Residents of the impoverished city of Zahedan, southeastern Iran, have attacked and clashed with the brutal plainclothes agents of the Iranian regime for killing a young Balochi man.
The repressive forces called for backup and fired shots in the air trying to disperse the crowd, fearing that the protest could draw more protesters and turn into larger unrest.
The angry crowd attacked police vehicles, throwing rocks at them to evade arrest.
Earlier on Saturday, the repressive forces shot at a young Balochi man called Mousa Shahbakhsh for not having a driver's license and ignoring a stop sign. The bullet pierced the young man’s chest resulting in his death. This incident happened at Keshavarz Avenue in the Zahedan city center.
