Iranians rise against repressive government

by on December 5th, 2003

An Iranian uprising is underway against the highly repressive government of Iran.

Iranian Supreme Revolutionary Guard forces under the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei reportedly killed a 10-year-old boy in the country’s minority Baloch region yesterday, touching off a massive uprising against the Islamic regime countered by a deadly crackdown and imposition of martial law, according to sources on the scene.

Amid burning banks, stores and government offices, at least 30 Baloch protesters are dead and 80 injured in the southeastern city of Saravan near the Pakistani border, said Malek Meerdora, who immigrated to Canada from the city in 1993.

MSNBC has picked up the story, but for some strange reason the scale of the conflict is reported as being much less.
