Iran protests: Security forces intensify deadly crackdown in Kurdish areas

At least 30 anti-government protesters have been killed by security forces in Kurdish-populated cities in west Iran in the past week, a rights group says.

Hengaw reported that seven had died since Sunday in Javanroud alone, amid an intense crackdown by Revolutionary Guards armed with heavy weapons.

On Monday, the funerals of two protesters turned into a mass rally.

In one video, a protester can be heard saying the Revolutionary Guards are firing machine guns at people's heads.
