Demonstrations in Iran: Iranian judiciary indicts hundreds of people after protests

According to state media, hundreds of people have been charged in connection with the protests in Iran. In the capital Tehran, 315 demonstrators are to answer in court, as the state news agency IRNA announced on Monday. Four people are also accused of "war against God". According to the Islamic legal system in Iran, they face the death penalty. The judiciary has repeatedly emphasized in recent weeks that it will act mercilessly against the demonstrators.

The system-critical protests in Iran were triggered by the death of the 22-year-old Iranian Kurd Mahsa Amini. The moral police had arrested her because she allegedly did not comply with the mandatory rules for wearing a headscarf. The woman died in police custody on September 16. Since her death, thousands have been demonstrating across the country against the government's repressive course and the Islamic system of rule. According to human rights activists, tens of thousands of people were arrested and at least 240 killed.
