According to the authorities, more than 1,200 people have been arrested in Iran since the protests began after the death of a young woman as a result of her arrest by the vice squad. “In the unrest of the past few days, 450 rioters were arrested in Masandaran,” Prosecutor General Mohammad Karimi of the northern Iranian province said on Monday, according to the state news agency IRNA. As of Saturday, Iranian authorities had already reported 739 arrests, including 60 women, in Gilan, Masandaran’s neighboring province.

In Masandaran, “rioters attacked government buildings and damaged public property,” Karimi said. According to local media reports, the demonstrators chanted anti-government slogans. According to the Fars news agency, 88 people were also arrested in the southern province of Hormosgan – there were also dozens of arrests in the cities of Sanjan in the north-west, Kerman in the south-east and Karaj west of Tehran.

The head of the Iranian judicial authority, Gholamhossein Mohseni Edschei, called for “decisive action without forbearance” against the protesters on Sunday. According to an unspecified official record by the Iranian authorities, 41 people have been killed since the protests began, including demonstrators and security forces. Oslo-based NGO Iran Human Rights (IHR) reported at least 57 protesters killed.

The Tasnim news agency published around 20 photos of demonstrators, including women, on Monday in the city of Qom, 150 kilometers south of Tehran, which is holy to Shiites. The military had asked residents to identify the “leaders of the riots” on pictures and “to inform the authorities”.

The nationwide protests have been going on for ten days. The trigger was the death of the young Kurdish woman Mahsa Amini in custody of the vice squad. Amini was arrested on September 13 on charges of not wearing the Islamic headscarf in accordance with strict regulations. After her arrest, she collapsed under mysterious circumstances at the police station and was pronounced dead at the hospital three days later.
