Two more people die in Iran amid wave of protests

Two people were shot dead in demonstrations in Iran on Sunday evening, bringing the death toll to four.

The two were killed in the southwestern city of Izeh, the area’s local member of parliament, Hedayatollah Khademi said.

Khademi told the ILNA news agency that he did not know whether the deadly shots were fired by security officials or protesters.

The violence continued for a fourth day on Sunday despite President Hassan Rouhani’s appeal for calm. In a pre-recorded address aired on state TV, Rouhani said that while Iranians had the right to criticize authorities, the government would show no tolerance for those stoking unrest, CNN reported.
