A member of Iran’s Basij paramilitary force linked to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps was shot dead during events falling on the anniversary of Mahsa Amini’s death, state media reported on Sunday.

“One person was martyred and three people were injured” on Saturday evening in a “blind shooting” by two unknown assailants towards Basij guards in the city of Nurabad in Southern Fars province, state news agency IRNA reported.

The Revolutionary Guards, meanwhile, announced that a dual national was arrested over “attempts to organise riots and vandalism” in Karaj city west of the capital Tehran.

On Saturday, authorities arrested several groups over accusations of “planning to create chaos” and producing content to serve “hostile media”, according to IRNA.


Many of the arrests were made in Amini’s home province of Kurdistan, as well as Iran’s northwest and south, the agency added.

Authorities in the central city of Isfahan have “identified 97 people” and blocked 15 Instagram pages for attempting to stir up “public opinion” on the anniversary of the protests, IRNA said.
