Thousand people charged in Tehran over Iran protests – BBC News

About 1,000 people in Tehran have been charged in connection with the anti-government protests in Iran, the city’s chief prosecutor has said.

Suspects accused of “acts of sabotage”, including murdering security forces and arson, face public trials this week.

Authorities have not said how many have been arrested nationwide, but rights activists have put the total at 14,000.

The unrest was triggered by the death on 16 September of Mahsa Amini, a 22-year-old woman who fell into a coma after being arrested by morality police in Tehran.
