Iranians have been appalled by the deaths of three 16-year-olds in the  anti-government protests that have been sweeping the country after Mahsa Amini's death in police custody on Sept. 16. 

Nika Shakarami: Her body was buried near her parents' hometown, Khorramabad, on Tuesday. But the burial did little to stop questions surrounding her death. According to her family, she disappeared on Sept. 20 while attending an anti-government protest in Tehran.
