Over one hundred people killed in Iran protests, say Amnesty

International Editor

A warning – there are some distressing images in this report.

Amnesty International says it believes at least 106 people have been killed in Iran during the wave of protests against the steep rise in petrol prices.

There’s been no official word on how many people have died, been injured or arrested since the unrest began on Friday.

The authorities have sent in riot police and security forces to restore control – as well as shutting down the internet.
