Khamenei orders Iran unrest victims treated as ‘martyrs’

AFP, Tehran

Iran’s supreme leader has agreed that people killed in nationwide unrest last month who had no role in fomenting it should be treated as “martyrs” with their families compensated.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s decision marked a significant softening of position by the Iranian authorities towards those killed during the protests that erupted on November 15 following a surprise hike in fuel prices.

He was responding to a report on the protests he commissioned from Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, his official website said Wednesday.

He ordered that its recommendations “be implemented as soon as possible”.
