Iran: Internet disrupted amid mass protests

DW, 23 Sep 2022
At least 17 people have died in Iran in days of protests over the death of Mahsa Amini. Clashes between security forces and protesters have been ongoing since Amini died while in police custody on September 13.

Among the victims from the ensuing protests have been both security forces and demonstrators, according to Iranian media. There were again violent clashes on Wednesday night, with footage, which could not be verified, purported to show shots being fired at those protesting.

A crackdown on internet usage has ensued, with mobile networks and Instagram, which was one of the last available social networks, blocked.
