(Worthy News) – The U.N. voted to commence an investigation into Iran’s crackdown on nationwide protests over the past two months.
The Human Rights Council will appoint an independent investigator to complete a fact-finding mission on Tehran’s response to the protests after the council passed the motion on Thursday. The council’s chief, Volker Turk, said that Iran was in a “full-fledged” crisis and called the government’s actions “unacceptable” and “disproportionate” in his opening address.
Volker noted that at least 300 people have died, and more than 14,000 have been arrested, since the protests started in mid-September. Some estimates put the number as high as 350 dead and over 15,000 arrested. [ Source: Fox News (Read More…) ]
