Rights Group: 106 killed in Iran’s crackdown on anti government protests | VOA

Over 106 people have been killed in Iran over protests against the government aimed at gas prices in the past week. Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is claiming triumph over the protests and demonstrating his power over his citizens. Internet access had been shut off and pro-government messages were played across TV’s and new stations in an attempt to bring order. The protests began after gas prices suddenly shot up by 50% without any warning during an already poverty-stricken time.
