Supreme leader of Iran blames protests on Israel and US

The British foreign office has summoned Iran’s diplomatic representative in the UK over the increasingly violent suppression of protests in Iran.

Today the Supreme Leader of Iran, accused America and Israel of planning ‘riots’ to destabilise Iran.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei was making his first public comments since the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini in police custody three weeks ago triggered the biggest demonstrations in Iran in years.
