US Official: Iran protest deaths may have topped 1,000 | VOA news

The body count in Iran continues to rise after protests over a sudden extreme gas price increase has reached three weeks. A U.S. official announced that there are over 1,000 suspected with deaths, with thousands wounded and another 7,000 arrested. Video footage shows forces pursuing a group of protestors before opening fire and killing at least 100 citizens. The clerical sources in Iran claim the foreign estimates of a higher death toll are pure fiction and are sticking with a death count of 208. Rulers are claiming the violence and protests are being led by thugs, rather than the average citizen.
