Deadly protests continued for a ninth day Saturday across Iran as demonstrators have become increasingly frustrated by the government’s response to the death of Mahsa Amini earlier this month.

Protestors have taken to the streets to voice their discontent with the Islamic Republic after the 22-year-old woman died while in police custody following reports of severe beatings and torture. 

As many as 35 people have been killed since the protests erupted last week, reported Iranian news outlets late Friday.

But there are no signs of the protests slowing down, with some taking to the streets Saturday in Shiraz, a city in south-central Iran, chanting “death to the dictator.”
