Teen girls, 16 and 17, beaten to death by Iranian police leaving one with crushed skull

Date:


Reacting to the deaths, Amnesty, an international human rights group, said: “The Iranian authorities knowingly decided to harm or kill people who took to the streets to express their anger at decades of repression and injustice.

“Amid an epidemic of systemic impunity that has long prevailed in Iran, dozens of men, women and children have been unlawfully killed in the latest round of bloodshed.

The two teenage girls who have died in the past fortnight were participating in protests over the death of Ms Amini, who died in police custody after being detained under draconian hijab rules.

She was arrested by the so-called morality police for failing to wear the head covering – which are mandatory in public spaces for women – and, authorities said, later collapsed and died of a heart attack.
