Iran’s Revolutionary Guard is claiming to have quelled anti-government protests that began late last month and spread to several major cities. NPR reports that so far the brutal Islamic regime has killed at least 21 people.
The demonstrations began on Dec. 28 in the second-largest city of Mashad, followed a sharp rise in food prices against a backdrop of accelerating unemployment.
After an apparent wave of police state brutality, authorities in Iran have claimed in the past few days that protests were waning.
Hundreds of people have been jailed and are presumably being tortured by the psycho Islamics running the country.
