Iran rocked by more violence as protesters mourn victims  

The clashes saw angry protesters taking on government forces, who had opened fire and blocked ways to the victims’ graves.   
Iranian refugees and Iranians living in Greece hold up placards during a demonstration to commemorate 40 days from the death of Iranian Mahsa Amini while in police custody in Iran, in central Athens on Oct. 29, 2022.

More than ten Iranian cities saw yet another day of turmoil after protesters attempted to pay tribute to victims of the crackdown on anti-government unrest that has gripped the country since Mahsa Amini’s death in police custody back in September.  

The city of Karaj, 40 kilometers west of the capital Tehran, was filled with chaotic scenes, according to reports by both state media and opposition observers.
