At least 17 people have been killed in protests that have rocked Iran over the past six days over the death of Mahsa Amini after she was arrested for improperly wearing a veil, Iranian state television announced Thursday.

“Seventeen people have been killed, including protesters and policemen, in incidents over the past few days,” said IRIB television, which said this was its count and not government data.

The protests began on Friday following news of the death of Mahsa Amini after she was detained by morality police for improperly wearing the hijab, and have been spreading across the country.
