Violent Iranian Protests Continue
Two separate sets of violent protests are ongoing in Iran. The first set is from Azeris in the northwest of Iran, furious over a cartoon published in an Iranian State newspaper that depicted them as a cockroach. Over 100,000 have been in the protests that have been ongoing since the weekend.
The second set of protests, unrelated, come from student groups in Tehran and in Khuzistan near the Iraq border. Students in Tehran have set fires outside their dormatories and been in violent clashes with Iranian police and Basij.
