Iran Tries Protestors As Demonstrations Continue

Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.6

Despite warnings from Hossein Salami, the commander-in-chief of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, protestors have continued taking to the streets in Tehran and other cities decrying the death of Mahsa Amini in September.  Iranian courts have begun trying arrested demonstrators with charges such as “corruption on Earth” and “waging war against God,” both of which carry the death penalty.  After the suspension of protesting university students in Tehran, other students rallied in support.  Iranian officials have accused the United States and Israel of being behind the unrest.
