- Hackers backing Iran’s wave of women-led protests interrupted a state TV news broadcast with an image of gun-sight crosshairs and flames over the face of supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, in footage widely shared online on Sunday.
- “The blood of our youths is on your hands,” read an on-screen message that flashed up briefly during the TV broadcast Saturday evening, as street protests sparked by the death of Mahsa Amini, 22, again rocked Tehran and other cities.
- “Police forces used tear gas to disperse the crowds in dozens of locations in Tehran,” state news agency IRNA reported, adding the demonstrators “chanted slogans and set fire to and damaged public property, including a police booth.”
