Five died as Iran’s Ayatollah regime, who claims a new world order has been launched, cracked down violently on those protesting the death of a woman in captivity.

The deaths came on Wednesday, September 21 after a woman (Mahsa Amini) accused of wearing her headscarf incorrectly died at the hands of the authorities.

Iranian police say that the woman died from natural causes, however, that has done little to appease the nation who accuse the government of not respecting woman’s rights. Unlike protests in the past, this one is growing and has even spread to Iranian Kurdistan.
