<<Iran security forces 'shoot dead at least three civilians'.
Iranian security forces have shot dead at least three people in the western province of Kurdistan in the latest deadly protests sparked by the death of Mahsa Amini, a rights group said. The country's clerical leadership under Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is facing its biggest challenge since the Islamic Revolution of 1979, in two months of violent demonstrations after Amini's death in custody on 16 September. The authorities have responded with a crackdown that Olso-based group Iran Human Rights (IHR) says has left at least 342 people dead, half a dozen already sentenced to death and more than 15,000 arrested. On Saturday, Hengaw, a Norway-based rights group which monitors abuses in Kurdish areas, told AFP <the government's repressive forces opened fire on protesters in the town of Divandarreh, killing at least three civilians>.
Protesters have been killed in 22 of Iran's 31 provinces, IHR said on Wednesday, including 123 in Sistan-Baluchistan and 32 in Amini's home province of Kurdistan.>>

<<Iranian protesters chant anti-regime slogans at boy's funeral.
Protesters at the funeral of a young boy whose family say was killed by Iranian security forces have chanted anti-regime slogans and ridiculed the official account of his death. Hundreds of mourners flocked to the city of Izeh in south-western Iran for the funeral of Kian Pirfalak, according to footage posted online. His mother said at the funeral ceremony that Kian was shot on Wednesday by security forces, although Iranian officials insisted he was killed in a <terrorist> attack carried out by an extremist group. <Hear it from me myself on how the shooting happened, so they can't say it was by terrorists because they're lying,> his mother told mourners, according to a video posted by the 1500tasvir activist Twitter account. <Maybe they thought we wanted to shoot or something and they peppered the car with bullets - Plainclothes forces shot my child. That is it.> Ridiculing the official version of events, the protesters chanted: <Basij, Sepah - you are our Isis!> according to a video posted by the Norway-based Iran Human Rights (IHR). The Basij is a pro-government paramilitary force and Sepah is another name for Iran's feared Revolutionary Guard. Isis is an alternative name for the extremist Islamic State group.
Activists have put Kian's age when he died at nine or 10. Opposition media based outside Iran said another child, 14-year-old Sepehr Maghsoudi, was shot dead in similar circumstances in Izeh on Wednesday. Funerals have repeatedly become flashpoints for protests in the movement that started after the death on 16 September of Mahsa Amini, who had been arrested by the Tehran morality police.>>

<<Iran protesters set fire to Ayatollah Khomeini's ancestral home.
Protesters in Iran have set on fire the ancestral home of the Islamic republic's founder Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini two months into the anti-regime protest movement, images showed on Friday. The house in the city of Khomein in the western Markazi province was shown ablaze late Thursday with crowds of jubilant protesters marching past, according to images posted on social media, verified by AFP.
Khomeini is said to have been born
at the house in the town of Khomein - from where his surname derives - at the turn of the century. He became a cleric deeply critical of the US-backed shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi, moved into exile but then returned in triumph from France in 1979 to lead the Islamic revolution. >>

<<Oscar-winning Iranian director 'salutes' protesters.
Marrakesh (Morocco) (AFP) - Acclaimed Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi on Friday praised the <courage> of Iranian protesters, telling AFP he <salutes> the ongoing calls for political change in his homeland. Iran has been gripped by a wave of protests sparked by the death in mid-September of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, after her arrest by the country's morality police for allegedly breaching the strict dress code for women. Speaking on the sidelines of the Marrakech International Film Festival, underway in Morocco, the two-time Academy Award winner said he is <following very closely> the events unfolding in his homeland. <I want to take this opportunity to salute my people, the new generation, the women and men who have taken to the streets and who are trying to take their destiny into their own hands,> he said. The protests have been met by a harsh crackdown, with Oslo-based monitor Iran Human Rights saying 342 people, including 43 children, have so far been killed by security forces. Iran's authorities have to date condemned five people to death over the demonstrations. Iran faces an <extremely decisive moment>, Farhadi said, and <will no longer be the same country> after the current protest movement. <The question is, how will these movements and protests end? And will the unity that is necessary among Iranians, for the country to move forward, be maintained?> he said.>>

<<Iran protests: family of boy, 9, killed in night of violence blame attack on security forces.
The family of a nine-year-old boy killed on Wednesday evening by assailants on motorbikes during some of the worst violence in Iran in two months of protests have accused security forces of carrying out the attack. Kian Pirfalak was one of seven people including a woman and a 13-year-old child killed by gunmen in the western city of Izeh.
Authorities blamed the deaths on <terrorists> who <took advantage of a gathering of protesters in front of the central market of the lo-cality to open fire on people and security officers>, according to a report by the official IRNA news agency. IRNA said eight people were wounded, including three police and two members of the Basij para-military force, which is linked to the Islamic Revolutionary Guards .
But in an audio recording tweeted by Radio Farda, a US-funded Per-sian station based in Prague, a man identifying himself as a family member said security forces were responsible for Kian's death. <He was going home with his father and was targeted with bullets by the corrupt regime of the Islamic republic. Their car was attacked from all four sides,> the man is heard saying in the recording. A similar allegation was made on Instagram. The boy's body was reportedly taken to the family home covered in ice because family members feared if he was sent to the morgue it would be taken by the secu-rity forces, as has happened in numerous other cases. Protesters said members of the Basij paramilitary force were running amok in the city on Wednesday.
Ali Karimi, an Iranian footballer and supporter of the protesters who lives in the United Arab Emirates, wrote on social media: <Kian! We will take back Iran!> Kataneh Afshar Nejad, an Iranian actor, posted footage of herself on Instagram without a hijab condemning Pirfalak's death.
On Thursday a protester was killed in Bukan, the Oslo-based Hengaw rights group said. Late on Wednesday the group had said security forces were accused of killing at least 10 people within a 24-hour period during protests in the cities of Bukan, Kamyaran, Sanandaj and Amini's home town of Saqez.
In a sign that the regime could be preparing the ground for an uptick in repression, official news agencies said Wednesday night's deaths might be evidence that the protests were turning into an <armed insurrection>.
Women have been at the forefront of the recent protests.>>

<<Iran hands out more death sentences to anti-government protesters.
Four people have been sentenced to death on the charge of <enmity against God> in connection with the recent anti-government protests in Iran. Revolutionary Courts in Tehran said one of the unnamed <rioters> hit and killed a policeman with his car, the judiciary's Mizan news agency said. The second possessed a knife and a gun, and the third blocked traffic and caused <terror>, it alleged. The fourth was convicted of a knife attack, Mizan reported late on Tuesday. Human rights activists condemned the death sentences - which brought the total to five since Sunday - saying they were the results of unfair trials.
<Protesters don't have access to lawyers in the interrogation phase, they are subjected to physical and mental torture to give false confessions, and sentenced based on the confessions,> the director of Norway-based Iran Human Rights, Mahmood Amiry-Moghaddam, told AFP news agency.
Although the judiciary did not disclose the identities of the five indi-viduals sentenced to death, Amnesty International said information about their charges had led human rights activists to believe they were Mohammad Ghobadlou, Manouchehr Mehman Navaz, Mahan Sedarat Madani, Mohammad Boroughani and Sahand Nourmohammad-Zadeh.It added that they were among at least 21 detainees charged with security-related offences that are punishable by death under Iran's Sharia-based legal system, including <enmity against God> and <corruption on Earth>. At least 348 protesters have been killed and 15,900 others arrested in a crackdown by se-curity forces on what Iran's leaders have portrayed as foreign-backed <riots>, according to the Human Rights Activists News Agency (HRANA), which is also based outside the country.>>

<<Istar Assembly announces its program for November 25.
Makhmur- The Istar Assembly in the Makhmur refugee camp issued a press statement to announce its program for the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. Reading the statement, Gurbet Islek, coordinating member of the Istar Assembly , announced the program. She started reading the statement by commemorating those who lost their lives in the women's freedom struggle. <Many women such as Rosa Luxemburg, the Mirabal sisters, Sara, Seve, Deniz Poyraz, Helbest and Nagihan waged a great struggle against the patriarchal system and left a great legacy for us. As the women's struggle grows, women are subjected to rape, torture and torture. We are determined to expand our struggle for a democratic, equal and free life. The fascist Turkish state and its supporters have carried out attacks in our region to destroy Kurds and women's struggle for freedom. The aggravated isolation imposed upon leader Apo |Kurdisch leader jailed in solitary by the turkish government| has been deepening. Leader Apo has dedicated his life to women's freedom. That's why we think it's important to welcome the 25th of November. It's time for the women's revolution with the slogan, 'jin, jiyan, azadi' |is the Kurdisch language slogan|.> >>
