Iran's Ayatollah Khamenei says Middle Eastern nations must bind together

Iran's Ayatollah Khamenei says Middle Eastern nations must bind together

The nation's police chief denied officers fired at protesters and said they had been ordered to show restraint. An estimated 1,000 people attended the protests.

Iranians, already suffering under crippling USA sanctions, expressed shock and outrage over the plane crash that killed scores of young people.

The protests started on Saturday afternoon as mournful gatherings for the Iranian lives lost in the crash and soon turned into people chanting "death to liars" and seeking Ayatollah Ali Khamenei's resignation after the authorities confessed that the Iranian military mistakenly shot down the plane.

Iranians expressed shock and anger over the plane crash.

Iran's government spokesman dismissed Trump's comments, saying Iranians were suffering because of his actions and they would remember that he had ordered the killing in a drone strike of Qassem Soleimani, the general whose death on January 3 prompted huge mourning ceremonies in Iran over several days.

What happened at the protests?

Meanwhile, other social media posts supposedly showed images of police in riot gear hitting demonstrators with batons. What appears to be gunfire can be heard.

Footage showed blood on the ground, wounded being carried and people who seemed to be security personnel running with rifles.

Video from the incident -which was verified by the Associated Press- shows people being carried away after being shot with live ammunition and other demonstrators fleeing as tear gas is fired into the crowd.

The protestors, by declining to comply with the government, is likely one way for the protesters to send a message to the government that they disagree with their current policies, but it should not be interpreted that they are in support of the U.S. or Israel. In an apparent reference to the shooting down of the plane, he said he hoped Iran has seen its "last show" of "deceit and stupidity".

Taraneh Alidoosti, one of Iran's most famous actresses, posted a picture of a black square on Instagram with the caption: "We are not citizens".

"For the first hours, people did not realise the seriousness of the situation, and only in the evening when the data were published and the Iranians themselves realised that there was an absolute majority of ethnic Iranians (on the plane), then people began to understand this catastrophe", he said.

What's the latest on the Flight PS752?

Iran denied a coverup was in the works.

"Some officials were even accused of lying and a cover-up but, in all honesty, that was not the case". "But honestly it was not like that", spokesman Ali Rabiei told reporters on Monday.

Foreign Affairs Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne tweeted Monday afternoon that Iran has approved all the needed visas for Canadian consular officials who are helping grieving families in Iran.

President Hassan Rouhani promised a "thorough investigation" into the disaster in a phone call with Sweden's Prime Minister Stefan Lofven, his office said.

Amirali Hajizadeh, the head of the aerospace division of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), said on January 11 that his unit accepts "full responsibility" for the tragedy. The zero-casualty missile attack was in response to the death of General Qassem Soleimani, the Iranian colonel-general, in a US airstrike in Baghdad.

"We must all join hands to bring security back to the region and allow peace to prevail". "He could have chose to strike or not to strike, and under such circumstances he took the wrong decision".

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the congressional leadership should have been informed of the strike against Soleimani in advance.

"Can confirm that I didn't take part in demonstrations!"

"We had exquisite intelligence and the intelligence showed that they were looking at United States facilities throughout the region, ' O'Brien said on NBC's 'Meet the Press".
