Two Iranian protesters shot by police in third day of angry rallies
Two protesters at least were shot by Iranian security forces in the western town of Dorud on Saturday, according to a video posted on social media, on the third day of anti-government demonstrations around the country, Reuters reported.
The video appeared to show demonstrators carrying two people in Dorud, where marchers were seen earlier shouting slogans against Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Reuters added.
The footage could not be authenticated and the gravity of the injuries sustained by the two protesters was not immediately known, according to Reuters.
