<<UN chief calls on Iran to refrain from using 'disproportionate force' against protesters.
UN Secretary-General Antonio Gutierres called on Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi not to use <disproportionate force> against protesters who took to the streets after the death of a young woman in morality police custody, his spokesman said Tuesday. In a bilateral meeting last week during the UN General Assembly, Guterres <stressed to President Raisi the need to respect human rights, including freedom of expression, peaceful assembly and association>, spokesman Stephane Dujarric said. <We are increasingly concerned about reports of rising fatalities, including women and children, related to the protests,> Dujarric said in a statement. He said Guterres <calls on the security forces to refrain from using unnecessary or disproportionate force and appeals to all to exercise utmost restraint to avoid further escalation>. He also called for a <prompt, impartial and effective investigation> into the death of Mahsa Amini, the young woman who died in the custody of Iran's morality police, sparking nationwide protests that have left at least dozens of people dead. Raisi on Saturday labelled the protests <riots> and urged <decisive action against the opponents of the security and peace of the country and the people>, his office said.

<<Iran conducts deadly strikes in Iraq's Kurdish region as anti-veil protests mounts.
Iranian strikes on Wednesday targeting the bases of a Kurdish opposition group in northern Iraq that had condemned the crackdown on Iranian protesters killed at least nine people and wounded 32 others, according to Iraqi Kurdistan officials. The strikes came as demonstrations continued to engulf Iran after the death of Mahsa Amini, a 22-year-old Iranian Kurdish wo-man who was detained by the Iranian morality police. Iran's attacks targeted Koya, some 65 kilometers (35 miles) east of Irbil, said Soran Nuri, a member of the Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan. The group, known by the acronym KDPI, is a leftist armed opposition force banned in Iran. Iraq's Foreign Ministry and the Kurdistan Regional Government have condemned the strikes. The UN mission in Iraq has also deplored the attack, saying <rocket diplomacy is a reckless act with devastating consequences>. <These attacks need to cease immediately,> the UN mission said on Twitter.>>

<<Protest-hit Iran launches strikes that kill 9 in Iraqi Kurdistan.
Iran launched cross-border missile and drone strikes that killed nine people in Iraq's Kurdistan region Wednesday after accusing Kurdish armed groups based there of stoking a wave of unrest that has rocked the Islamic republic. The September 16 death of Kurdish Iranian woman Mahsa Amini, 22, while in the custody of Iran's morality police has sparked a major wave of protests and a crackdown that has left scores of demon-strators dead over the past 12 nights. Iran's Islamic Revo-lutionary Guard Corps has in recent days accused the Iraq-based Kurdish groups of attacking and infiltrating Iran from the northwest of the country to sow insecurity and riots and spread unrest.After several earlier Iranian cross-border attacks that caused no casualties, a barrage of missiles and drones on Wednesday claimed nine lives and wounded 32, said the regional health minister in Arbil, Saman al-Barazanji, while visiting some off the wounded in a hospital in the capital of Iraq's autonomous Kurdistan region. Kurdistan region. <There are civilians among the victims>, including one of those killed, a senior official of the Kurdistan region earlier told AFP.
An AFP correspondent reported smoke billowing from locations hit, ambulances racing to the scene and residents fleeing, at Zargwez, about 15 kilometres (10 miles) from Sulaimaniyah, as medics were treating the wounded.>>

<<Iran footballers show solidarity with protests over Mahsa Amini's death.
Iran's players covered up their national symbols by wearing jackets before the friendly with Senegal on Tuesday evening, showing solidarity with protests against the repression of women in their home country. The past 11 days have seen significant unrest in Iran after the death in custody of Mahsa Amini, who had been arrested on 13 September for refusing to wear a hijab. There have been widespread protests and before their match in Maria Enzersdorf, a town just outside Vienna, the national team made their anger visible. Carlos Queiroz's team wore black jackets while the national anthems were play-ed, concealing their country's colours and badge. The match was played behind closed doors by edict of Iran's football association, which held the rights to the fixture, but a sizeable number of demonstrators gathered outside in an effort to make their voices heard on television feeds. On Sunday the influential Iran forward Sardar Azmoun had spoken out in support of the protests via his Instagram account. <At worst I'll be dismissed from the national team,> wrote the Bayern Leverkusen player. <No problem. I'd sacrifice that for one hair on the heads of Iranian women. This story will not be deleted. They can do whatever they want. Shame on you for killing so easily; long live Iranian women.> Azmoun, who scored in the 1-1 draw against Senegal and is expected to be a key player for Iran in the World Cup in Qatar, deleted the post but published a new, less strongly worded entry on Wednesday morning in support of Iranian women. He has joined a number of teammates in blacking out the profile pictures on his Instagram and Twitter accounts. Last week another national team player, Zobeir Niknafs, produced an Instagram video in which he shaved his head in solidarity with the protests. Gareth Southgate and his assistant, Steve Holland, were among those allowed inside to watch the game. >>

<<When a young Kurdish woman, Mahsa Amini, died in regime custody 10 days ago, Kurdish corners of Iran were the first to erupt; their anger at leaders they say have long oppressed them had an incendiary effect in their towns and cities. The death of the 22-year-old, who refused to wear a hijab on a visit to Tehran, quickly became a potent symbol of defiance for a minority group that had long har-boured nationalistic ambitions, which rarely stayed hidden, and often eschewed the values of the country's hardline leaders. But some-thing happened along the way to what could have been a Kurdish nationalist uprising; Iranians from across the country fast shared in the outrage of the death of Amini and the collective indignity it represented to a greater population. Soon protesters on the streets of most of the country's provinces were testing the limits of state forces. <It is not an Iranian revolution, or even a Kurdish revolution,> said Rozhin, 25, from the Kurdish city of Kermanshah. <It is a women's revolution.>
Demonstrations against the theocratic state's stance towards women show little sign of slowing down in many parts of Iran. Women, who bear the brunt of state constraints, have been particularly vocal, tearing down pictures of Grand Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and the assassinated general Qassem Suleimani. Both acts were unthinkable even months ago, but so too was the spectacle of large numbers of women Kurdish, Persian and minorities  taking to the streets without hijabs. <It's now not about Kurdish movement, neither about Persians,> said Karim, 27, from the town of Bokan. <It's about 85 million humans who are fighting back for their rights, socially, economically and in every aspect of life. One week ago a Kurdish girl was a stranger in the capital of Iran and now her face is known everywhere around the globe. This is not about national movement , this is beyond that; it's about women, and it's about our basic human rights. <At this moment, every individual is thinking about fundamental aims and problems to be solved. But I do not guarantee that after one year the Kurds have another way of thinking about Persians. Kurds in Iran account for roughly 10% of the country's population, and make up roughly a quarter of the greater Kurdish presence in the Middle East, scattered between west and eastern Iran, northern Iraq, northern Syria and southeastern Turkey. A century after the breakdown of post-first world war Ottoman boundaries, there is no Kurdish state, and numerous groups vie among populations to claim leadership roles among what remains a fractured population whose search for a homeland has remained elusive. Five years ago this week, Iraq's Kurds held a referendum on stathood, which was passed overwhelmingly. However, within days, Iraq's army, led by powerful militias and directed by Suleimani, pushed north to seize the oil city of Kirkuk and retake much of the land seized by Kurds after the ousting of Saddam Hussein in 2003.
Rozhin says the aftermath of the demonstrations is not being considered, for now. <Women are struggling so much with so many problems. It's obvious that people do not only have an issue with the hijab, but the system of government. They have changed the definition of Islam. They are killing many people. They are denying every single right of women. They don't allow us to choose. It's not only about the hijab issue, it's about our right to make choices>>

<<At least 450 people have been arrested in Mazandaran, a northern province of Iran, during the last 10 days of protests, according to the province's chief prosecutor. Protests sparked by the death in police custody of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini have spread across the country. They have been met with internet shutdowns and violent repression. The official death toll in the unrest is 41, and human rights groups say the true number may be higher. Amnesty International said at least four children had been killed by state forces since the beginning of the protests. It described a <harrowing pattern> of <deliberate and unlawful firing of live ammunition at protesters>. Heba Morayef, Amnesty's Middle East and north Africa director, said: <The rising death toll is an alarming indication of just how ruthless the authorities' assault on human life has been under the darkness of the internet shutdown.>
Despite efforts to stop Iranians from accessing apps such as Instagram and WhatsApp, videos of people allegedly killed during the protests have been spreading on social media. Parents of young people killed during the protests have expressed disap-pointment at the response from the international community. <People expect the UN to defend us and the protesters,> said the father of 21-year-old Milan Haghigi, quoted by Amnesty International. <I too can condemn [the Iranian authorities], the whole world can condemn them, but to what end this condem-nation?> Videos showed protests on Sunday night in Tehran and cities including Yazd, Isfahan and Bushehr. The Norway-based Kurdish rights group Hengaw said a protest was held in Amini's home town of Saqqez despite a heavy military presence, and there were reports of a 10-year-old girl being taken to hospital after she was shot in the northern town of Bukan. Other reports said students at three universities in Tehran were refusing to attend lessons. >>

<<Iran pledges 'decisive action' as Mahsa Amini protests continue. Iranian president's warning comes as social media videos showed protesters back on the streets despite a crackdown that killed at least 41 people. Iran's President Ebrahim Raisi has pledged to deal <decisively> with the protests that have swept the country since the death of a woman who was detained by the Iranian morality police.
Raisi's comments on Saturday came as protesters took to the streets for a ninth consecutive night, defying a crackdown in which at least 41 people have been killed, according to state television. It said the toll was based on its own count and official figures were yet to be released. Hundreds of people have also been arrested, with protests reported in most of the country's 31 provinces.
The president <stressed the necessity to distinguish between protest and disturbing public order and security, and called the events a riot,> state media reported.
Women have played a prominent role in the protests, waving and burning their veils. Some have publicly cut their hair as furious crowds called for the fall of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. The protests have been the largest to sweep Iran since demon-strations over fuel prices in 2019 when the Reuters news agency reported 1,500 people were killed in a crackdown on protesters the bloodiest confrontation in the country's history. On Friday, state-organised rallies took place in several Iranian cities to counter the anti-government protests, and the army promised to confront <the enemies> behind the unrest. State television in Iran, which has accused armed exiled Iranian Kurdish dissidents of involvement in the unrest, said the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps had fired artillery on bases of Kurdish opposition groups in the Kurdish region of northern Iraq.
'Spiralling deadly response'
At least three times this week, mobile internet has been disrupted in Iran, the NetBlocks watchdog has reported. Activists say the move is intended to prevent video footage of the violence from reaching the world. In an effort to help sustain internet connection, the United States is making exceptions to its sanctions regime on Iran, a move Tehran said on Saturday was in line with Washington's hostile stance. Rights group Amnesty International said protesters face a <spiralling deadly response from security forces> and called for an independent United Nations investigation. On the night of September 21, shootings by security forces left at least 19 people dead, including three children, it said. <The rising death toll is an alarming indication of just how ruthless the authorities' assault on human life has been under the darkness of the internet shutdown,> Amnesty said. State television showed footage purporting to show calm had returned to many parts of the capital Tehran late on Friday. <But in some western and northern areas of Tehran and certain provinces, rioters des-troyed public property,> it said, carrying footage of protesters setting fire to rubbish bins and a car, marching, and throwing rocks. The activist Twitter account 1500tasvir carried videos of protests in Tehran's western district of Sattarkhan showing protesters gathered at a square chanting: <Don't be afraid, we are all in this together,> late on Saturday with a motorcycle apparently belonging to riot police burning in the background. Another video, purportedly from Saturday evening, showed a woman defiantly swin-ging her headscarf above her head as she walked in the middle of a Tehran street.
Demonstrators also took to the streets of cities in Iraq, Germany, Greece, Sweden, the United Kingdom and the US on Saturday to express solidarity with Iranian protesters. In Iraq, dozens of Iraqi and Iranian Kurds rallied outside the UN compound in the northern city of Erbil, carrying placards with Amini's photograph and chanting: <Death to the dictator,> referring to Khamenei.>>
