PARIS - The official death toll has nearly doubled to 35 in a crackdown by Iran's security forces on more than a week of protests that erupted after the death of a young woman in custody.

Protests were held around the Islamic republic on Friday night, with online videos showing some turning violent, including in Teheran. Elsewhere, the Norway-based Kurdish rights group Hengaw said protesters"took control" of parts of the city of Oshnaviyeh, in West Azerbaijan province. Thousands of people marched through Teheran during a pro-hijab rally Friday, paying tribute to security forces who have moved to quell a week of protests by what media called"conspirators".
