Iran’s crackdown on protesters to be investigated by UN

BBC, 25 Nov 2022
The UN Human Rights Council has approved an international investigation into Iran’s violent crackdown on anti-government protesters.

The vote was not as close as expected, with 25 states in favour, six against, and 16 abstaining.

Iran described calls for the investigation as an arrogant political ploy.

More than 300 people have been killed and thousands arrested since unrest began in Iran, the UN said, following the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini in police custody.
