Violent Suppression of Protests in Khuzestan Must Stop

The International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran expressed deep concern about the violent suppression of the ethnic Arab population in Ahwaz, Iran, which has reportedly led to the death of dozens of protesters as well as numerous injuries and arrests since 15 April 2011. The Ahwazi Organization for the Defense of Human Rights reported that 48 people have been killed, and hundreds arrested.

According to information received by the Campaign, violence against peaceful protesters has occurred in Abadan, Khorramshahr, Ahwaz, Falahieh, and Hamidieh in the southwestern province of Khuzestan. The Arab population in Khuzestan has been subject of discrimination and severe repression, particularly during the past few years.
