Dozens of cities in Iran and Eastern Kurdistan have been protesting for days after the death of Mahsa Amini in police custody. Demands for democracy and freedom are voiced during the protests that started after the murder of the young Kurdish woman by the vice squad in Tehran.

Seven protesters have been killed in Eastern Kurdistan in the past four days. In addition, about 250 people have been injured and more than 500 others have been arrested in Iran and Eastern Kurdistan.

According to local sources, 1 person was killed in the Sine city of Eastern Kurdistan, 1 person in Dehgulan, 2 people in Diwandara, 1 person in Mahabad, 1 person in Urmia and 1 person in Piranshahr.

A source from the hospital where she died told Iran International on Saturday that her brain tissue had been crushed after “multiple blows” to the head, adding that Amini was taken to Kasra Hospital in the capital Tehran as she was unresponsive and brain dead. . The source added that her lungs were filled with blood when she was taken to hospital, and it was clear she “could not be resuscitated”.

The source emphasized that Mahsa’s condition “was such that she could not be saved or surgery was possible because her brain tissue was severely damaged, and it was clear that the patient was not injured by a single blow and would have to undergo many blows to her head.” have had.” .”

A photo of Mahsa on the hospital bed showed her unconscious with very clear signs of bleeding from her right ear. Several doctors, including health magazine editor Mahdiar Saeedian, pointed out on social media that otorrhagia (bleeding from the ears) proves her coma was caused by trauma to the head.

The CT scan of Mahsa Amini’s skull shows fractures, bleeding and brain edema, Iran International reported Monday.

The medical documents and dozens of exclusive images sent to Iran International by a hacktivist group vividly show a skull fracture to the right side of her head caused by severe skull trauma, corroborating previous stories from her family and doctors of her blows multiple times on the head, showing that the Iranian police’s claim that she had suffered a heart attack was untrue.

Images of her chest show bilateral diffuse alveolar hemorrhage and damage from aspiration pneumonia, secretion retention, and superimposed infection. Doctors say the results are compatible with acute respiratory distress syndrome due to brain trauma.
