Interior minister warns demonstrators after two people are killed, and Trump tells Tehran to respect freedom of speech
Iranians protesting against the government have been told they will “pay the price” for what appeared to be the biggest domestic political challenge to Tehran’s leaders since security forces crushed the 2009 Green movement.
At least two protesters were killed in the city of Doroud, in Iran’s western Lorestan province, as riot police opened fire to contain a group of people said to have been trying to occupy the local governor’s office.
