Protests in Iran continued Thursday evening in the capital Tehran and several other cities including in Western cities of Sanandaj and Kermanshah.

Although protests began last Friday when a 22-year old woman, Mahsa Amini died after being detained by the notorious religious police for hijab, nationwide unrest began on Monday, that takes place mostly in the evenings.

Protesters have shown determination and self confidence in many locations by not retreating in the face of police and anti-riot forces.

Disruption in mobile internet which began Wednesday has continued and may prevent or delay news and footage of protests tonight from reaching the Iranian people and the outside world.

According to Iran Human Rights Organization (IHRO), 31 protesters have been shot dead by security forces in various cities and many have been arrested in the past five days. The official news agency (IRNA) has reported a total of 17 deaths among protesters and security forces.
