IRAN | According to the Iranian Foreign Ministry, it has summoned the British ambassador to express its displeasure over what it called a hostile environment fostered by Farsi-language media outlets located in London. DUBAI, United Arab Emirates Iran’s Foreign Ministry announced on Sunday that it had summoned the British ambassador to express its displeasure over what it called a hostile environment fostered by Farsi language media outlets located in London. The action takes place in the midst of violent upheaval in Iran brought on by the murder of a young woman while in police custody.

According to the state-run IRNA news agency, the ministry also summoned Norway’s ambassador to Iran and vehemently denounced recent comments made by Masud Gharahkhani, the president of the Norwegian parliament.

Unrest spread through Iran’s regions and the city of Tehran after Mahsa Amini, 22, died in detention after being arrested by the morality police.

At least 46 Iranian cities, towns, and villages have witnessed demonstrations in response to Amini’s passing. According to reports on state television, at least 41 protestors and police have died since the demonstrations got underway on September 17. At least 13 people have died, according to official government claims compiled by the Associated Press, while more than 1,200 protesters have been detained.

Demonstrators and security personnel have been engaged in ongoing fights. According to the semi-official Fars news agency, a Basij volunteer with the Iranian Guards was slain by demonstrators yesterday night in Tehran. According to IRNA, another Basij member who had been unconscious since Thursday due to street fighting passed away on Sunday in Urmia, West Azerbaijan province.

According to the website of the Iranian Foreign Ministry, the country summoned Simon Shercliff, the British ambassador to Iran, on Saturday to express its displeasure at the presence of scathing Farsi-language media sites. According to the government, news organisations’ top programmes intentionally sparked unrest and the growth of riots in Iran.

Iran claimed that the news organisations’ reportage constituted an intrusion into its domestic affairs and a violation of its sovereignty.

The Iranian crisis started as a reaction to the murder of Amini, who was detained by Tehran’s morality police for reportedly donning her Islamic headscarf too loosely. Her family has disputed the police’s claim that she suffered a heart attack and died as a result.

Western nations and the United Nations have harshly condemned Amini’s killing.

On Sunday, pro-government demonstrations took place in several Iranian cities. A gathering with Iranian flags was attended by thousands in the capital’s Enghelab, or Revolution Square. A few government representatives, including Ali Bahadori Jahromi, the cabinet spokesperson, joined the gathering in Tehran.
