GENEVA: Iran’s Revolutionary Guards have arrested about 100 leaders of protests that erupted last week over fuel price rises, Gholamhossein Esmaili, spokesman for Iran’s judiciary, said yesterday, according to the official Irna news agency.

“Approximately 100 leaders, heads and main figures of the recent unrest were identified and arrested in various parts of the country by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps,” Esmaili said.

Iranian authorities have said about 1,000 demonstrators have been arrested.

Anyone who created insecurity or damaged public property will face “severe punishment”, the head the judiciary, Ebrahimi Raisi, said.
