4 Videos, which could not be verified, also reported live ammunition being fired at the protesters.

5 The internet has been massively restricted and mobile networks in particular have largely been shut down.

6 Instagram, one of the last free social networks, has also been blocked.

7 Iranian football star Ali Karimi has however showed solidarity with the protests in his home country.

8 The former professional player received encouragement from many outraged Iranians.

9 “Don’t be afraid of strong women.

10 Maybe the day will come when they are your only army,” Karimi wrote on Twitter.

11 Karimi himself lives in Iran.
The protests were triggered by the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini.

12 She was arrested a week ago by the morality police for violating the strict Islamic dress code.

13 What exactly happened to Amini after her arrest is unclear, but she fell into a coma and died in hospital on Friday.

14 Critics have accused the morality police of using violence, but the police have rejected the accusations.

15 Since then, thousands of people have been demonstrating across the country against the government’s repressive course.
