Iran’s police say two Basij members have lost their lives during a Monday-night disturbance in the capital Tehran, raising the number of security forces’ fatalities from the incident to five.
The police said one of the men was killed in a car ramming and another was killed in a knife attack. This comes after three members of the security forces lost their lives in a bus attack by the agitators. The violence also left 30 policemen and a number of attackers injured. Police said more than 300 people were arrested in the violence that erupted during an illegal rally in Tehran’s Pasdaran neighborhood. Officers were deployed to the area to maintain public order. Police said agitators also damaged public property and smashed the windows of nearby houses.
