Following the passing of Mahsa Amini, a Kurdish woman 22 years old, while in the custody of Iranian police, 185 people have been killed in rallies around the country since mid-September, including no less than 19 minors.

Amini was reportedly detained by the infamous morality police on Monday for allegedly breaking strict Islamic dress regulations for women, according to a report in The Times of Israel.

Since her burial on September 17, Iranians have descended in droves around the nation to seek justice for her.

According to the article, demonstrators were slain as security personnel attempted to calm the populace’s indignation, which was endangering the country’s ability to maintain order.

“At least 185 people, including at least 19 children, have been killed in the nationwide protests across Iran. The highest number of killings occurred in Sistan and Baluchistan province with half the recorded number,” TTI said to have quoted a Norway-based Iran Human Rights group.

The report also said, “some 20 members of Iran’s various security forces and armed groups have also died in this timeframe.”

On Sunday, videos on Iranian social media appeared to show students – including high school girls and university students staging a protest on the campus of al-Zahra University in Tehran.
It has become demonstrations as the report revealed that students chanted against Iran’s president during a visit there on Saturday.
