<<Iran unrest intensifies as three killed following protester's funeral
Iran appears to have entered a cycle of deadly violence after three more people were killed by security officers overnight during a pro-test rally held after the funeral for another protester killed on Wednesday. Funerals for protesters have become flash points in the weeks-long unrest that has gripped the clerical state since the death in police custody of Mahsa Amini on 16 September. Hengaw, a Norway-based human rights group, said security forces shot dead at least three protesters in the city of Mahabad near Iran's western border with Iraq on Thursday night. The deadly gunfire came after mourners paying tribute to Ismail Mauludi, a 35-year-old protester killed on Wednesday night, left his funeral and made their way to-wards the governor's office. <Death to the dictator,> protesters yelled, using a slogan aimed at Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, as the Mahabad governor's office burned. Amnesty International said in a statement late on Thursday that <unlawful killings> by Iran's security forces had claimed the lives of at least eight people in four provinces within 24 hours. In a highly unusual admission of fault on the part of Iranís security apparatus, aut-horities in Sistan and Baluchestan province said the head of police in the provincial capital Zahedan had been sacked due to <deficien-cies> in his handling of protests in the city on 30 September. An internal inquiry found that police had fired on protesters and that this contributed to what the inquiry said was a total death toll of 35. An order to pay compensation to the families of the victims has also been issued in a further sign that the Iranian state fears that ten-sions in the province have not subsided. The Zahedan protest had been called in response to the reported rape of a teenage girl by a police commander. Rights groups have put the death toll from that day - which has come to be known as Bloody Friday among Iranians - at above 90.>>

<<Iran withholding bodies of slain protesters from families, says UN rights office.
The UN human rights office on Friday voiced concern about Iran's treatment of detained protesters and said that authorities were re-fusing to release some of the bodies of those killed. The death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini in police custody last month has ignited protests in one of the boldest challenges to Iran's clerical leadership since the 1979 revolution. Rights groups have said at least 250 protesters have been killed and thousands arrested. <We've seen a lot of ill treatment ... but also harassment of the families of protesters,> Ravina Shamdasani, spokesperson of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, told a Geneva press briefing, citing multiple sources. <Of particular concern is information that authorities have been moving injured protesters from hospitals to detention facilities and refusing to release the bodies of those killed to their families,> she said. Shamdasani added that in some cases, authorities were placing conditions on the release of bodies, asking families not to hold a funeral or speak to the media. Protesters in detention were also sometimes being denied medical treatment, she said.>> (Reuters)

<<Iraq's new government unlikely to solve crises
Baghdad (AFP) - Iraq's parliament has approved the government of Prime Minister Mohamed Shia al-Sudani after more than a year of political paralysis, but the war-ravaged country is far from reaching safe shores. Sudani now faces the gargantuan task of delivering on pledges to fight corruption and offer job opportunities to the country's disaffected youth, all while grappling with an unpredictable political opponent. In a bid to dispel criticism over his pro-Iran poli-tical backers in parliament, he has also vowed not to <adopt the polarised politics> of the past that saw Iraq split amongst fiercely rival camps. But oil-rich Iraq has for years suffered rampant cor-ruption preventing the adequate distribution of funds, and analysts predict no imminent end to the country's protracted crises.
Will anything change?

<<'This generation is really brave': Iranians on the protests over Mahsa Amini's death. Tens of thousands of Iranian protesters have marked 40 days since Mahsa Amini's death by gathering in her home town, Saqqez, with people in Tehran, Mashhad and other cities also taking to the streets. Here, four Iranians describe the 40th day and how the protests have evolved in recent weeks.
Saqqez, Kurdistan province
I wasn't able to go to Aichi cemetery, where Mahsa Amini is buried, yesterday but my siblings were there. Wednesday was the 40th day after Mahsa's death. In Iranian culture people gather another time for her loss. The governors had closed the road to Aichi so people had to walk through rural areas to get to the cemetery. Some had come from other cities. Governors had sent forces and basij [para-military volunteer militia] from around Kurdistan province. I was very worried about my siblings, they had to leave their phones at home because they were concerned about GPS tracking. They said forces were using teargas in the streets and shooting in Zindan square [on the way to Aichi]. My brother told me the cemetery was really crow-ded. There were so many people; the government had tried its best to prevent it but people still went. All the people they knew in the city were there. In the cemetery my brother noticed there were drones in the sky. He said it felt like there wasn't a leader at the cemetery - that was the weakness of the event. They weren't chan-ting in unity. If we had more freedom we could be more organised - it's not people's fault.
Students are active and they go out on the streets. Parents are scared but this generation [is] really brave and united. The police are afraid of people and want to suppress them harshly. Some of the basij look very young - just teenagers. Zeynab, 31
Lately I have seen more and more anger. People are well organised now. More slogans on street walls, insulting the regime and supreme leader directly. There is no neighbourhood where you don't hear chanting slogans every night. The city is full of anti-riot police. Peo-ple talk about the situation and there [are] plenty of women without hijab in streets and malls. I think the leaders are frightened. They speak to the media more than past weeks trying to justify their ac-tions. They are trying to ignore their violence and put the respon-sibility on the people who are protesting. This is the basic strategy of the mullah's regime: everyone is our enemy, and every country is our enemy and all of these people in the streets are the enemy's forces. When you watch state TV or state media you [would think] all the world is burning and we live in heaven. But the broken technology, economy, corrupt government and the strong hand of mullahs makes the country like a hell. Ali, 44, works in advertising.
Fars Province
Me and my friends in Shiraz constantly ask each other about how we feel. It's stressful and horrifying. It's a daily routine now. We say: <How are you? Are you safe? Please take care of yourself.>
Even though this is a very religious and deprived small town, mostly people encourage the protests, especially women. The majority want the regime gone. I spoke to two religious women [and even they] were talking about how the regime is brutally killing people. But sexism here is still an issue. The movement has brought a new perspective - it's been very impressive. People are talking about freedom a lot. And I see why they're calling this movement feminist, because now women know how precious they are. Something that they've forgotten this whole time - this is something you can feel. Sara, 22, graduate
I didn't see people shouting slogans but almost all the shops are closed - people who were on the streets, weren't just out for fun. I hadn't seen this many basij on the streets since the beginning of the protests. There were many people in the streets but they were not gathered together. I could smell teargas. There were people honking in their cars, which can be interpreted as a protest. I saw basij shoot at them with paintball guns and some people being arrested and beaten in the street. Before Wednesday, the protests in Mashhad started strongly, but after a couple of weeks have become more calm compared [with] other cities. I think this may be because Mashhad is more religious than other cities. The protests here are not every day now - they're usually twice a week. Before, they were in many parts of the city, but now they've moved to specific streets.
When people see others beaten in the street fewer believe in reform. I myself was one of those who believed in reforms four to five years ago, but I later came to understand that reform is not possible under this regime. I can see the change in my parents, too - my father par-ticipated in all the elections since the revolution except in the last election where he didn't vote. I think older people are mostly against the corruption in government; for younger people the motivation is that they want to have more freedom. I think the younger genera-tion, those who are 16, 17, are much braver. These kids have been raised differently and we can see the results. I admire them. Social media has had a vital role in this. Many people, when they want to go and protest, they use Telegram to set a time and place on the channels; when others see how people have been beaten in the street they want to join and help. The quality of the internet de-creases closer to night. You need a good IT knowledge to get online in Iran. Many thought these protests would be done in two weeks. They haven't finished and they don't seem like they will finish soon. Hossein, 30s, teacher>>

<<Iran protests reignite at funerals and commemorations for those killed.
Protests against the Iranian government have suddenly regained momentum as funerals for those killed and a highly emotional commemoration of the movement have stretched security forces drawn into a further cycle of arrests and repression. Dozens of towns were rocked by protests on Wednesday night as mainly young crowds used the cover of darkness to mark the 40th day since Mahsa Amini, a young Kurdish woman, died in police custody, sparking unprece-dented unrest. Official state news agencies focused on an unrelated attack that left as many as 15 people dead and 30 injured after three extremists fired at pilgrims inside the Shah Cheragh, or Emperor of the Night shrine, in Shiraz. Protesters appeared to have taken control on Thursday of Mahabad, a heavily Kurdish city of about 200,000 people close to the border with Iraq. The unrest boiled over when a 35-year-old Kurdish man named as Ismaeli Maludi was shot dead on Wednesday, reportedly by direct fire from government forces, according to Hengaw, a Norway-based group that monitors rights violations in Iran's Kurdish regions. Another protester was shot in nearby Sanandaj. After Maludi's funeral on Thursday a crowd attacked a police station and the governor's office chanting <death to the dictator> and <Kurdistan, the graveyard of fascists.> Grainy video appears to show the streets packed with protesters, a bank enveloped in smoke and the police station in flames.
Official news agencies said the protesters had smashed windows in banks, the tax office and the civil registry, but denied the police station had been seized. All market activity had stopped on Thursday as the protests continued. The official news agency, however, reported: <The city is completely calm, and life is normal and the fire and rescue services are busy cleaning the city after the fires in rubbish bins.> Crowds also gathered at the burial site of Nika Shakarami, 16, who died on 20 September in Tehran. Officials said she had killed herself and had a history of depression. But video footage released by CNN appeared to support the claim that she may have been shot during the protests. The footage showed her hiding behind a car while fleeing the security forces and urging the driver: <Don't move, don't move.> Nika's aunt had urged crowds to come to her commemoration, but the security forces tried to block the roads.
Her family say the state buried her body without their permission in Vesian village in Khorramabad, the capital of Lorestan province. Chants of <Death to Khamenei> were heard at her memorial. Nika's mother, Nasrin, said in a speech: <I will for ever be in agony for your sufferings, but I love you. When I see that pure seed of your thinking - freedom, courage and honour blossoms in the hearts of other loved ones, I am happy and grateful.> Nasrin previously gave an interview to BBC Persian in which she said: <Like Nika, I have been against compulsory hijab since I was a child. But my generation was not brave enough to protest. People my age accepted years of suppression, intimidation and humiliation, but my daughter protested and she had every right to do so.> Iranian human rights groups said there were unconfirmed reports that some members of Amini's family were under house arrest, but Reuters was unable to verify the reports.
The protests have also taken on a more explicitly anti-clerical flavour.>>
