Iran’s president has warned that he will not accept “chaos”, as authorities continue to crack down on protests that have swept across the country since the death in custody of a young woman.
Ebrahim Raisi said Mahsa Amini’s death two weeks ago, after she was detained by morality police, had “saddened all but will not allow his government to watch people disturbing the peace of society through riots”.
Fresh unrest was reported on Wednesday night amid a mounting death toll.
State media have said that 41 people, including security personnel, have been killed and that more than 1,200 have been arrested. END
