Iran’s Chief Justice Warns Protesters as Protests Spread Across the Country

Iran-HRM – Iranian authorities warned protesters not to stage further protests, as  major street demonstrations continue over the shootdown of a Ukrainian passenger airliner.

Ebrahim Raisi, Iran’s Chief Justice, issued a warning to protesters on Monday, saying “the agents of America and agents of foreign countries” want to use anger over Flight 752 to “compromise” Iran’s security.

The protests broke out after the Iranian military on Saturday said it unintentionally shot down a Ukrainian passenger airliner last week, killing all 176 people on board, after denying for days that it was responsible.

Authorities in Tehran deployed security forces, members of the Revolutionary Guard on motorcycles and plainclothes security men.

The heavy security presence was also reported in Tehran’s Azadi Square on Monday.

Several videos appeared to show security forces firing live ammunition and tear gas to disperse protests in the streets.
