Trump denounces 'brutal and corrupt' Iranian regime

At least 20 people are dead in Iran's bloody week of protests

Anti-government protests in Iran flared on more fronts yesterday amid clashes that left at least nine people dead, state media reported, as leaders in Teheran struggled to respond to the most serious internal crisis in almost a decade. Hundreds have been arrested for taking part in the demonstrations.

Six people were killed Tuesday during an attack on a police station in the town of Qahdarijan in central Iran, reports Bloomberg, citing state media reports. It said the clashes were sparked by rioters who tried to steal guns from the police station.

"The economic situation is bad, people are suffering, people are not seeing results", said Ariannejad, who has lived in Canada for about 20 years but has family in Iran.

Iran's leader, the Supreme Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, is blaming foreign enemies for the six days of protests. The movement is most commonly referred to on social media as "Protests Everywhere".

The senator also warned the Iranian government that if it violently quashes protests taking place there that it will likely face punitive U.S. sanctions.

Protests against the Government are entering their sixth day with citizens violently clashing with police as water cannons and tear gas being controversially used to suppress the crowds.

The US State Department condemns the arrests and President Donald Trump insists that Iranian authorities "respect their people's rights".

Rouhani had called on security forces to exercise restraint.

Monday marked the fifth day of deadly protests in Iran, where 21 people have now been killed as Iranians protest the country's economic and political instability.

"We are also very concerned at reports that the government has blocked the Internet on mobile networks and that social media services like Instagram and messaging services like Telegram were shut down in an attempt to quell the protests", the statement said.

A French foreign ministry spokesman expressed concern over the "large number of victims and arrests" as a result of the protests. Many in the United States have openly voiced their hope for the change including President Donald Trump who said it was "time for a change" in tweet on Monday.

Former National Security Adviser Susan Rice also took to Twitter, posting a New York Timesarticle titled, "How Can Trump Help Iran's Protesters?"

. She continued by saying, "If the Iranian dictatorship's history is any guide, we can expect more outrageous abuses in the days to come".

"We must not be silent. All freedom-loving people must stand with their cause". Khamenei said Tuesday that the country's enemies have meddled in recent protest rallies.

Fortunately, in recent days, demonstrations have erupted across Iran, in opposition to widespread repression and economic problems.

The protests - which began Thursday in the northeast city of Mashhad, Iran's second-largest city after Tehran - have swelled to become the largest uprising in the country since the disputed presidential election in 2009.
