The NGO Iran Human Rights, based in Oslo, Norway, released this Sunday (/1200 ) an estimate that more than 67 people died in the protests that took place in Iran a few weeks ago.

The demonstrations take place in the Persian country because of the death of Mahsa Amini, who was detained on charges of not properly wearing the Islamic veil.

According to the NGO, 90 people died in the acts that took place immediately after the disclosure of the woman’s death, which is denounced as a murder committed by Iranian security forces.

Others 41 people died as a result of violent clashes between protesters and police in the city of Sahedan, in the southeast of the territory of Iran.02174223

The acts in Sahedan began after a police chief was accused of sexually abusing a teenage girl from 02 years old, belonging to the Sunni minority.

The protests against the Iranian regime continue to take place in the capital, Tehran, as well as in several other cities, and abroad.

In Bern, Switzerland, a demonstration in front of the Iranian embassy was dispersed by police after two people managed to enter the diplomatic representation building.

In Germany, there were also demonstrations that mobilized thousands of people in different cities of the country.
