‘Death to the dictator!’ Violence on streets of Iran

Iran entered its third day of protests as furious citizens took to the streets to rail against the regime they blame for devastating the country’s economy.

Protests have broken out in a number of cities this week over the dramatic drop of the country’s currency and other economic problems ahead of the imposition of renewed US sanctions.

Videos shared online purportedly show some furious Iranians burning tyres and setting fire to police vehicles as demonstrations spun out of control.

Referring to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, many chanted ‘death to the dictator’ at protests.
