At Least 16 Killed in Anti-Government Protests Across Iran
At least 12 protesters were reported killed on Saturday and Sunday, while President Hassan Rouhani warned in televised remarks that his government would show "no tolerance" for those who incite unrest.
State TV says six rioters were killed in the town of Qahdarijan, during an attack on a police station.
Mehr reported a gunman had killed a policeman and wounded three other officers during a protest in the same location - the fist reported fatality among Iran's security forces.
Police used tear gas and water cannons to disperse a small protest in Tehran's Enghelab Square on Sunday evening, according to unverified social media videos. Hundreds of demonstrators have been arrested. "It's unclear how this is happening from town to town, except through social media".
Pro- and anti-government demonstrations have been taking place in Iran since Thursday.
USA president Donald Trump, a critic of Tehran, commented again on the protests in tweets on Monday.
Trump has been a sharp critic of Iran and the nuclear deal the country signed in 2015 with the USA and other world powers.
"The entire world understands that the good people of Iran want change, and, other than the vast military power of the United States, that Iran's people are what their leaders fear the most...." They are hungry for food & for freedom. Trump tweeted on December 31 that it looks like the Iranians "will not take it any longer", adding, "The USA is watching very closely for human rights violations!"
Iran is failing at every level despite the bad deal made with them by the Obama Administration.
'We regret the loss of life that has occurred in the protests in Iran, and call on all concerned to refrain from violence and for worldwide obligations on human rights to be observed, ' he said.
Mr Rouhani had dismissed Mr Trump's earlier comments on Sunday.
"Oppressive regimes can not endure forever, and the day will come when the Iranian people will face a choice".
The towns are all in Iran's central Isfahan province, some 215 miles south of Tehran, the capital.
"It's clear there's a kind of discontent that's sweeping Iran over broad issues". The foreign ministry called on citizens not to travel to Iran "under any circumstances" because of protests there, and also urged any Bahrainis in the country to leave immediately.
Iran's intelligence ministry released a statement saying "instigators" have been identified "and will be dealt with seriously soon".
