One Killed In Petrol Protests In Iran

Protests broke out across Iran against gasoline prices hike, protestors block roads entering, exiting Tehran.

One person was killed in Iran on Saturday in demonstrations against a government decision to hike petrol prices, according to the semi-official ISNA news agency.
Protesters attempted to set a fuel depot on fire in the central city of Sirjan but were thwarted by security forces, Governor Mohammad Mahmoudabadi said.
He said the Iranian authorities were still seeking to determine the cause of the protester's death.
The Iranian governor said that security has been restored in the city after the intervention of the security forces, going on to call on the people to avoid joining what he described as "unlicensed" protests.
Later on Saturday, the demonstrators blocked the roads entering and exiting the capital Tehran.
According to local sources, protests are ongoing in several provinces, including Tehran, Fars and Isfahan.
The Iranian state television said the protesters in Shiraz set two gas stations and two police vehicles on fire.
They also blocked main streets and damaged public buildings in the city and destroyed security cameras, fire trucks and vehicles on the road.
Iran's Chief Prosecutor Mohammad Jafar Montazeri warned that those behind the protests will face judicial process.
Demonstrations have broke out across Iran since Friday after the government imposed petrol rationing and raised gasoline prices. -
