Deadly clashes erupted on Wednesday night (May 16, 2018) between residents and state security forces in Kazerun, south-west Iran, after the authorities launched a clampdown on a peaceful anti-regime protest in the city earlier in the day.
Reports from activists at the scene suggest at least three protesters were killed, dozens were injured and up to 150 were arrested as the regime attempted to stifle further dissent. In the course of clashes, a police station and a police vehicle were set ablaze. Video clips via activists of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI or MEK) in the country.
