Iran has been wracked by more than a week of violent protests following the death of a young woman named Mahsa Amini. Amini died in a Tehran hospital days after being detained by Iran’s morality police for breaking hijab rules. Protesters accuse the police of beating her into a coma. Authorities have released security footage disputing the claims.

Iran’s Foreign Ministry summoned UK Ambassador Simon Shercliff on Sunday to file an official protest against Britain’s alleged role in helping to foment the anti-government protests taking place in the Iranian cities.

“In response to the hostile atmosphere created by the London-based Farsi media against the Islamic Republic of Iran, the UK Ambassador was summoned by the Foreign Office’s Director General for Western Europe” , the ministry said in a statement.

Norway’s ambassador Sigvald Hauge was also summoned, with Tehran asking him to explain Oslo’s “interventionist stance” in Iran’s internal affairs following comments by Norwegian parliament speaker Masud Gharahkhani on the protests.

Gharahkhani, who was born in Iran, has spent the last week and a half tackle the “Ayatollah’s regime” on Twitter and in media interviews in Farsi, Norwegian and English, praise the demonstrators, he said, were protesting for “justice, democracy and freedom” and saying he would have been “one of those who fight in the streets” if his parents had not emigrated to Norway in the 1980s.

Also on Sunday, Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian criticized Washington for America’s alleged role in the unrest.

“Peaceful protest is the right of every nation. However, US involvement in Iran’s affairs and support for the rioters in carrying out their destabilization scheme is in stark contrast to Washington’s diplomatic messages to Iran regarding the need for a nuclear deal and the establishment of stability in the region,” Amir-Abdollahian said, meeting his Iraqi counterpart Fuad Hussein on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York.
Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi vowed to “resolutely investigate” the circumstances of Mahsa Amini’s death, but warned that threats to public order would not be tolerated after Iranian state television reported that 41 people had been killed during the protests, including protesters and police. . On Saturday, Raisi reiterated that the authorities “will decisively deal with those who oppose the security and tranquility of the country”.

Last week, Iranian authorities released security camera footage from the morality police station where Amini was being held before her death, showing her and other women entering the station and sitting down in an auditorium to a lecture on the rules of the hijab. She was then seen approaching a guard, and after talking to him about her attire for a few moments, grabbing her head and collapsing into a chair in front of her. Footage then shows an ambulance crew taking him to hospital.

Amini was arrested on September 13 and died on September 16. She was 22 years old.

Protests over Amini’s death began in Tehran on September 17 and spread to other cities in the following days.

Government supporters launched counter-protests on Friday, calling for the restoration of social order, accusing the US and Israel of stoking dissent and accusing anti-government protesters of burning mosques, flags and Korans and to act as “mercenaries serving foreign enemies. A pro-government rally in Tehran on Sunday included a funeral procession for a policeman who was killed in the violence.

The unrest in Iran coincided with the conclusion of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization summit in Samarkand, Uzbekistan, where Tehran was officially accepted as a member of the security and economic bloc.
