Iran Statistics 2

An article on the Press TV website takes a look at the unrest in Iran from the perspective of the police.

Police Chief Brig. Gen. Ahmad Reza Radan says 400 police personnel have been wounded in the post-election violence:

"Families of those killed or injured in the events since June 12 have filed 2,000 complaints so far," Fars quoted acting Police Chief Brig. Gen. Ahmad Reza Radan as saying Saturday.

He added that people have made 10,000 complaints that their daily lives have been disrupted, and said, "They have called on the police to deal with rallies firmly."

The police official said that people staged protests because they were called to take part in illegal rallies.

"The recent rallies destroyed 700 buildings, burst 300 banks into flame, damaged 300 cars and 300 public properties," Radan said.

Meanwhile, head of Tehran Emergency Center Reza Dehqanpour said that more than 50 reserved ambulances were used to help the injured.
