DUBAI: Iran summoned the British and Norwegian ambassadors over what it called interference and hostile media coverage of the nationwide unrest triggered by the death of a woman detained by morality police.

Clashes continued between security forces and protesters in several northwestern regions, according to sources in the cities of Tabriz, Urmia, Rasht and Hamedan. Activists said there were also protests in districts of the capital, Tehran. European Union foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said Iran should"immediately stop the violent crackdown on protests and ensure internet access". He also called for information on the number of people killed and arrested, and an investigation into"the killing of Mahsa Amini".

Gharahkhani, who was born in Tehran, continued to speak out on Sunday, writing on Twitter:"If my parents had not made the choice to flee in 1987, I would have been one of those fighting in the streets with my life on the line." The protests are the largest to sweep the country since demonstrations over fuel prices in 2019, when Reuters reported 1,500 people were killed in a crackdown on protesters - the bloodiest bout of internal unrest in the Islamic Republic's history.Iranian Oscar-winning director Asghar Farhadi called on activists and artists around the world to support the protesters, who he said were"looking for simple and yet fundamental rights that the state has denied them for years".

State media said 12 bank branches were destroyed in the unrest in recent days, and 219 ATMs have been damaged.
