, Index number: MDE 13/8756/2018

Iranian authorities must carry out an impartial and thorough investigation into reports that security forces used unnecessary and excessive force, possibly including firearms, against generally peaceful protesters during the recent protests in Khuzestan province where people have been demanding clean and safe drinking water. They must ensure that anyone detained solely for peacefully exercising their right to peaceful assembly is released, and that detainees are not subjected to torture or other ill-treatment pending release, Amnesty International said today.
