Paris: As many as 31 civilians lost their lives in an Iranian security forces crackdown following protests that erupted on the morality police’s arrest and subsequent death of Mahsa Amini, an NGO based in Oslo was quoted as saying by news agency AFP.

“The people of Iran have come to the streets to achieve their fundamental rights and human dignity… and the government is responding to their peaceful protest with bullets,” Iran Human Rights (IHR) director Mahmood Amiry-Moghaddam was quoted as saying in a statement by the agency.

According to IHR, it had confirmed protests happening in more than 30 cities and other urban places, raising alarm on “mass arrests” of protesters and civil society activists.
Protests first took place in the weekend in Kurdistan’s northern province — the place from where Amini originated — but have now spread in the entire country.

IHR said the toll included the killing of 11 people on Wednesday night in Amol, northern Mazandaran province on the Caspian Sea, and six lost lives in Babol in the same province.
