Thirty people, including several university students, have been arrested during the vigils and protests in Iran over the shooting down of a Ukrainian plane last week that killed all 176 people on board, according to the judiciary representative Gholamhossein Esmaili.
Another one of the men arrested during Iran’s nationwide anti-establishment protests in November was tortured to death, according to a Kurdish human rights group on Monday.
When Iran shot down a commercial airliner on January 8, officials seemed to have a cover story ready before the plane even hit the ground, killing all 176 people on board.
Apart from the huge human loss, IRGC’s shooting down of a Ukrainian airliner on January 8 marked an important point in the Iranian internal situation.
As expected, the Iranian uprising that sparked on November 15 is once again restored in the capital Tehran. However, this time it was ignited by the catastrophic crash of the Ukrainian civil airliner that left all 176 innocent passengers and crew dead.

The head of the Iranian team investigating the crash of Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752 declared this week that no more documents would be shared with the Ukrainian government and that overall cooperation with Kyiv had come to an end.
During the nationwide Iran protests that shook the country last November, 400 female protesters were killed because they advocated for freedom and democracy. That’s almost a third of the protesters killed overall. They also make up a significant number of the 12,000 arrested and 4,000 wounded during the uprising
