Iranian state media has reported that a Revolutionary Court in Tehran has passed the death sentence on a protestor who allegedly set a building on fire and was found guilty of “enmity against God.”  Other protestors have been sentenced for up to 10 years in prison. The protests began two months ago after the death Mahsa Amini following her arrest by Tehran’s Morality Police and have continued since. Iran Human Rights, a Norway-based group, estimates that 326 protestors including 43 children and 25 women have been killed by police. Another group estimates that almost sixteen-thousand people have been detained since the protests began.
