Most of the people in the streets are carrying Qurans

The protests have turned very violent in the streets from Enghelab to Azadi, and has been extended to Setar Khan area. It has been rumored that one person has been killed

“I, in the name of a reporter am saying that the bomb at Imam Khomeini shrine was not the work of a terrorist but the work of the regime itself.”

“This type of activity [regime bombing shrines] has a long precedent. A while back, a bomb exploded at the Imam Reza Shrine in Mashhad and some people were killed. They caught someone and made him confess on television. But later it became clear that the bombing had been the work of the Intelligence Ministry. And now they’re doing the same thing in order to give an excuse to crush the people.”

“People are throwing stones at the anti-riot police and plain clothes militia”

“Because of the harsh treatment by the plain clothes militia and security forces, protesters are shouting harsher slogans”
