Earlier, the governor of Iran's Sistan and Baluchestan province, Hossein Modarres Khiabani, announced that 19 people were killed and 20 others wounded in an attack on a police station in the city of Zahedan, southeast of Iran.
Recently, simulated demonstrations and riots in Iran killed and injured security forces and civilians. On the other hand, massive pro-government rallies took place across the country.
The demonstrators expressed their dissatisfaction with the riots, condemned the actions of the rioters, and called on law enforcement and the judiciary to take decisive measures against the vandals.
Tehran Public Prosecutor Ali Salehi said, "Security and stability are the priority of the judicial authorities, and whoever wants to undermine national security will be dealt with decisively."
