Pro-government gunmen ‘open fire on protesters in Iran’
Pro-government gunmen have opened fire on demonstrators in Tehran, according to local reports, just hours after Trump warned ‘do not kill your protesters.’
Local media footage showed a woman with blood pouring from a purported gunshot wound in the Iranian capital centre amid furious protests against the Ayatollah’s regime.
Other images showed a ‘militiaman’ holding a shotgun running away from the scene as a crowd gathered around the woman who was allegedly killed not far from the iconic Azadi Square.
Thousands have flocked to the streets of the Iranian capital after the government admitted that a passenger jet carrying 176 people had been downed by a missile last week.
President Donald Trump had sent a message of solidarity to the demonstrators on Saturday, tweeting: ‘There cannot be another massacre of peaceful protesters, nor an internet shutdown. The world is watching.’
