The United States says it will impose ‘further costs’ on Iran for its lethal crackdown on protests sparked by the death of Mahsa Amini, drawing accusations of ‘hypocrisy’ from Iran today. 22-Year-old Amini was pronounced dead on September 16, days after the morality police detained the Kurdish Iranian for allegedly breaching rules requiring women to wear hijab headscarves and modest clothes. Anger over her death has sparked the biggest wave of protests to rock Iran in almost three years and a state crackdown that has seen scores of protesters killed and more than 1,000 arrested.
