Mahsa Amini: How one woman’s death sparked Iran protests

The death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini after being detained by Iran’s morality police has sparked unprecedented protests across the country. Videos have emerged across social media showing young protesters, often women, demonstrating in defiance and often facing a violent response from the police. The Iranian government says protesters are a dangerous threat, and has blamed the US and Israel for spreading the unrest. This civil unrest is unlike anything seen in Iran for decades.
