Clampdown and grief as Iranians mark first anniversary of Mahsa Amini's death

  • Iranians marked the first anniversary of Mahsa Amini's death in police custody, with reports of a renewed crackdown to suppress protests. Amini, a 22-year-old Iranian Kurd, died shortly after being arrested for violating the strict dress code for women. Her family believes she died from a head injury, but the Iranian authorities dispute this.
  • The protests that rocked Iran last year lost momentum after a violent crackdown by security forces, resulting in the death of 551 protesters and the arrest of over 22,000 individuals. Iranian authorities claim that foreign governments and hostile media incited the riots. Activists say that the authorities have intensified their crackdown ahead of the anniversary to silence the families of the victims.
  • On the eve of the anniversary, the United States and its Western allies imposed new sanctions on Iran over the government's response to the protests. Amnesty International accused Iranian authorities of committing crimes under international law and criticized the lack of investigation into Amini's death. The Iranian regime is facing growing international condemnation as it seeks to introduce even stricter laws that restrict the rights of women and girls.
