Cops clash with protesters outside Iranian embassies in London and Paris

Police clashed with demonstrators trying to reach Iran’s embassies in London and Paris.

French police fired tear gas and used anti-riot tactics to prevent hundreds of people protesting in the capital from marching on Tehran’s diplomatic mission on Sunday.

In London, police said demonstrators tried to break through barriers protecting Iran’s UK embassy, and 12 arrests and five officers were “seriously injured”.

The demonstrators in Paris gathered for the second day running to express outrage at the death of Mahsa Amini following her arrest by Iran’s morality police.

Similar rallies in support of Iranian women have occurred around the world.
