Dozens injured as anti-regime protests erupt in Iran

Several people were injured after protests in Iran’s capital city Tehran turned violent on Sunday night, with security forces arresting demonstrators who had taken to the streets to protest against the Iranian regime.

Demonstrations erupted across the country after the Iranian regime admitted a civilian airplane was accidentally hit by a missile, killing all 176 people on board.

Iran had initially denied that a missile hit the plane.

Videos shared on social media showed protesters gathering in cities across the country, and chanting anti-regime slogans.

A video showed an injured woman who had reportedly been shot by security forces, according to Iranian activist Masih Alinejad, who shared the video on Twitter.
