Security forces wielding clubs and firing weapons beat back demonstrators who flocked to a Tehran square Wednesday to continue protests, two witnesses said.
One witness said security forces beat people like “animals.”
“They were waiting for us,” the source said. “They all have guns and riot uniforms. It was like a mouse trap.
“I see many people with broken arms, legs, heads — blood everywhere — pepper gas like war,” the source said.
Around “500 thugs” with clubs came out of a mosque and attacked people in the square, another source said.
The security forces were “beating women madly” and “killing people like hell,” the source said.
“They beat up a woman so bad she was all bloody,” the source said in a description that underscores the growing and central role of women in the uprising.
Gateway pundit reports three people were shot and one woman was killed and that the police won’t let protesters assist the wounded.
