Iran arrests 4 people, including female reporter, during protests


Iranian authorities arrested four people including a female reporter as sugar workers  organized protests to strike against unpaid wages and alleged criminal activity committed by the factory's managers.

The arrestees also include two representatives of the workers, according to IRNA. The workers were from the Haft Tapeh sugar company, located in Khuzestan's Shush.

Haft Tapeh has witnessed numerous protests since it was privatized over criminal allegations besides mismanagement. The sugar company employs around 4,000 people.
