Tehran, Iran, Jul. 29 – A police station in the Iranian city of Shiraz in southern Iran was ransacked on Thursday by youths who carried out the attack in retaliation for the murder of a young man at the hands of the local State Security Forces.

The station, situated in the Saadi district of Shiraz, was left virtually destroyed along with several police vehicles that had been parked outside.

Mohammad Erjaii, a police spokesman in Fars province, claimed that the young man was killed because he was “instigating trouble”. He said that a group of young men attacked policemen with sticks in the city’s Narenji Park, and that the unidentified youth was killed in the ensuing clashes.

Residents rejected the police account, saying that the youths were acting in self defence after they were attacked by the paramilitary police.
