- Taliban shoots in the air to disperse group of women supporting Iranian protests
Iranian state media reported that 41 people, including police and pro-government militia, were killed in the protests.
Iranian human rights groups say the actual number is higher.
The United States, France and the European Union have condemned Iran over Amani’s death.
Meanwhile, Iranian officials accuse the U.S. and some European countries of trying to find a way o incitement to unrest in this Muslim country.
Taliban forces fired in the air to disperse a group of women gathered in front of the Iranian embassy in Kabul in support of the protest in the country.
About 25 women Afghanistan gathered in front of the Iranian embassy in Kabul Thursday, chanting “Women, life, freedom!” to show support for the protest movement in Iran. They also carried banners that read “Iran has risen, now it’s our turn.”
Taliban fighters then fired in the air to disperse the crowd and tear down their banners.
Protests have appeared in many cities in Iran in the past two weeks following the death of Mahsa Amini, a 22-year-old Girl of Kurdish descent.
Amini died on September 16, three days after being arrested by “moral police” in tehran for allegedly wearing a hijab that was inconsistent with Islamic law.
Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi on September 28 said Amini’s incident caused all “grief” but warned “chaos” was unacceptable.
President Raisi said he would not allow protests and riots to “undermine social stability”. He demanded an investigation into Amini’s death
