Anti-government protests erupt in north-west Iran

London, Mar. 12 Banks, police cars, and government buildings were set on fire as violent clashes erupted on Saturday between security forces and angry residents in the north-western Iranian town of Piranshahr, according to eye-witnesses contacted by telephone.

Protests began after agents of the State Security Forces (SSF) shot and killed a young man in his car at a stop-and-search point.

At least five police vehicles were set on fire during the clashes between young protesters and security agents.

Reports from the Kurdish city of Mahabad in north-western Iran said that widespread clashes had broken out on Friday between residents and security forces after a detained man was shot at point blank by security agents.

Violent clashes rock the western City of Piranshar

SMCCDI (Information Service)
March 12, 2006

Violent clashes rocked, yesterday, the western City of
Piranshahr, as angry residents attacked official buildings,
banks, security patrol cars and trucks. The riot took place
following the murder of a resident, by Islamist Militiamen,
and the refusal of the local authorities to restitute the
body of the victim to his family.

Security forces closed all accesses to the Governor's
Office and resorted to shooting when facing an increasing
number of demonstrators. Several demonstrators were injured
and one has been reported in critical conditions.

Additional troops were sent from the neighboring cities in
order to control the situation which remains tense. The
residents are requesting the public trial of agents
involved in the murder and the shooting.

The try of the take over of the popular action, by
individuals affiliated to some separatist groups, was a
main reason that residents stopped their riot but they're
requesting the public trial of agents involved in the
murder and the shooting.

The area was also scene of other clashes, last year, but
again, the opportunist try of separatist groups, such as
the so-called Democratic Party of Kurdistan 'of
Iran',(PDKI) to claim leadership of the situation brought
the local residents to stop their protest actions.

While some foreign circles are evaluating a possibility to
create ethnic unrest in Iran, in order to harm the Islamic
regime, the reality is that such wrong tactic helps the
Islamists to stop popular actions in Iran's border zones.
Most Iranians, of every ethnicity, are profoundly attached
to Iran and its territorial integrity and the regime plays
such nationalistic feeling in its own favor.

The Bush Administration has correctly understood such
sentiment, and George W. Bush, the US President, declared
last July about the "necessity to respect the territorial
integrity of Iran". Such positive and unprecedented
statement resulted, few days later, in consecutive unrests
and popular expression for freedom in most of Iran's
western border zones. But the move stopped, few days later
and as soon as, some meaningless separatist groups, helped
by some foreign circles, tried to claim the ownership of
the situation.
