UN Ambassador Nikki Haley praised the Iranian people for protesting against what she calls an “oppressive regime”.
Haley opens an emergency UN Security Council session, by slamming Iran for allegedly providing military funding to Houthi Rebels in Yemen, after the terror group launched two missiles at Saudi Arabia this week.
She called on the UN to support the protesters, as the Iranian government calls for an end to the demonstrations.
According to reports, at least one thousand people have been arrested and 21 people have died from the protests which broke out last week.
Of those arrested, 90 students were detained in the sweeping demonstrations, the largest since the green movement, which was predicated on the outset of an alleged rigged election.
