Iran protests: Government says over 200 killed in unrest

Ten weeks into a wave of protests that have swept the nation, Iran’s government today put a number on those killed in the unrest for the first time – 200.

However that’s around a hundred shy of the UN estimate.

Doctors within Iran are concerned by the large number of protesters sustaining facial injuries; a tactic which those affected claim is deliberate.

Warning: This report contains distressing images of those injuries.
