"Hengaw Organization for Human Rights, a Norwegian-registered organization monitoring rights violations in Iran, said five people were fatally shot during demonstrations in Iran's Kurdish region on Monday. It said 75 others were injured in other cities over the weekend.

The protests erupted after the death of Amini, a 22-year-old Iranian woman who died in Tehran after being arrested by Iran's morality police last week.

Edited security camera footage released by Iran's state media appeared to show Amini collapsing at a "re-education" center where she was taken to receive "guidance" on her attire."


Why theocracies are a terrible idea.

Hint, hint.
