US urges Iran to release agitationists

  • US urges Iran to release agitationists

"Nothing [the authorities] do will decrease people's anger and frustration", Hadi, the son of a working class family in the northwestern city of Tabriz, told RFE/RL.

At least 21 people were killed and hundreds arrested. About 1000 were previously reported to have been detained during nearly a week of demonstrations.

USA officials and analysts studying Iran believe conservative opponents of President Hassan Rouhani, a relative moderate within Iran's clerically overseen government, started the demonstrations in Mashhad, but quickly lost control of them.

"We're a bit disappointed that the European Union has not taken a more definitive stance in supporting those voices within the country that are calling for reform", he said.

President Donald Trump is expected this week to extend relief from economic sanctions to Iran as part of the nuclear deal, citing progress in amending us legislation that governs Washington's participation in the landmark accord, according to USA officials and others familiar with the administration's deliberations.

An investigation has been opened into the death in custody of a young Iranian in Tehran's infamous Evin prison, the country's judiciary said Tuesday, with Sadeghi linking the death to recent protests. The demonstrators' slogans questioned everything from the price of eggs to the legitimacy of the highest levels of government, as viewers from around the world sought to pin down the precise motivations for their displeasure.

The number is far higher than the 450 people Iranian authorities previously said were detained.

Hadi talked of his own frustration at being accepted into Iran's Islamic Azad University but being unable to afford the school's fees.

According to Toronto-based lawyer and human rights activist Kaveh Shahrooz, Canada's response to Iran's crackdown on protesters came too late and says it was half-hearted.

Some Iranians envisaged rising prosperity two years after an global deal traded sanctions relief for checks on Tehran's nuclear program, and Rohani campaigned for election in 2013 and reelection last year pledging mild reforms and more jobs. The protests quickly raised the hopes of those overseas who want to see an end to the Islamic Republic.

Protests that have rocked Iran have reached the eleventh consecutive day on Sunday.

The demonstrations morphed quickly into protests against the clerical establishment and the country's leaders.

The powerful Guard blamed the unrest on the United States, Israel and Saudi Arabia, as well as an exiled opposition group known as the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq, and supporters of the monarchy that was overthrown in the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

"This is due to our people's continued support". "They tore down his poster and images of him all over Iran; they attacked the security forces; they attacked government offices; they burned banks; they burned religious centers associated with Ayatollah Khamenei, and this happened all over Iran". "Hadi said. "[Assad] supports Iran because he is investing Iran's money in his country".

"These protests, and their violent continuation are the outcome of nothing but the lack of institutions for the peaceful resolution of political and social conflicts".

The collapse a year ago of the Caspian Credit Institute, which promised depositors returns often seen in Ponzi schemes, showed the economic desperation faced by many in Iran.

Khamenei, however, also stressed that those with legitimate complaints about Iran's economy should be heard.

He added there was no accurate information about the number of people arrested by the regime in other Iranian cities.

In Yemen, the United States and other Western powers accused Tehran of supplying Shiite rebels with ballistic missile technology.

"The geographical scope of these protests were unprecedented in Iran's recent history". He held onto his presidency with Quds force generals leading foreign fighters from Afghanistan and Pakistan, as well Iranian-supported Hezbollah guerrillas from Lebanon.

"I don't want to suggest we're across the finish line on anything yet", Tillerson cautioned. "In Tabriz, we say that now the regime is even afraid or our silence".

More than 2,000 Iranians were detained by regime authorities in 15 provinces across the country during the protests, according to statements made by several Iranian officials in the past days.

"On the one hand it has succeeded in preventing these protests getting out of hand and contained them to a great extend and they did not achieve critical mass in terms of numbers", Randjbar-Daemi said. "This is not the end".
