Shooting a protest in Iran, police say they are not responsible



VIDEOS posted on social media recorded the shooting in the vicinity of Iranian protests triggered after Tehran admitted to crashing the passenger plane by mistake, which police immediately responded by stating that it did not shoot at the protesters.

It was not possible to immediately verify the authenticity of the footage, which also shows blood on the ground and people with guns, who appear to be members of the security forces.

“They Lie That Our Enemy is America”

Other shots show police in uniforms beating protesters with sticks while people nearby shout “Don't beat them!”

“The police absolutely did not shoot at the protesters because police officers in the capital received orders to show restraint,” said Tehran Police Chief Hosein Rahimi.

Iranian protesters have urged leaders to step down after the military admitted that it had accidentally crashed a Ukrainian aircraft.

“They lie that our enemy is America, our enemy is here,” shouted dozens of protesters in front of the University of Tehran, shown on footage circulating on Twitter.

Numerous protesters gathered in other cities as well

Reuters cannot check posts on social media, but Iran's state-run media reported Saturday's protests that erupted after the Iranian military apologized for accidentally crashing a Ukrainian plane on Wednesday, killing 176 people. Numerous passengers on the flight were dual citizens of Iran, and 57 had a Canadian passport.

Tehran residents said police were on the streets after days of public outrage.

Police on Saturday threw tear gas at thousands of protesters in the capital, many chanting “Death to a dictator” and channeling their anger at Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Hamnei.
