US: Iran’s protests death toll may surpass 1,000 amid crackdown

Brian Hook, the US pointman on Iran accused the Iranian regime of killing over 1,000 people since protests began in November, saying that it was the “worst political crisis the regime has faced and its 40 years."

“As the truth is trickling out of Iran, it appears the regime could have murdered over a thousand Iranian citizens since the protests began,” he said in a speech.

He added that the regime’s forces also arrested over 7,000 people and wounded thousands others.
