Iran: More arrests in Ahwaz

The Mohammara News Agency (MONA) has issued its own compilation of arrests of Ahwazi protestors in addition to the one received by the British Ahwazi Friendship Society (BAFS). MONA reports that Molotov cocktails have been used against offices of state-run corporations and banks as anti-government protests have escalated.

The attacks on government buildings came after mass arrests during peaceful demonstrations in Eid Al-Adha last week. Security forces fired on the crowd killing an unknown number of civilians (BAFS has received the names of three of the dead) and injuring many more. Children were present in the demonstration and some were imprisoned by the police, including an 11 year old and two 14 year old boys.

There are reports that the government is using agents provocateur to heighten violence in the province of Khuzestan, although the organisers of the Eid-al-Adha demonstrations had called for peaceful protests to mark the Muslim festival celebrating the end of Hajj (pilgrimage to Makkah).
