The protests, which have spread around the country, began after a 22-year-old woman died in custody after being arrested by Iran's morality police.

Now Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali, is speaking out Khamenei for the first time about the unrest.

He laments the death of the 22-year-old woman, which he describes as “heartbreaking”. But the protests are blamed by the Ayatollah on the US and Israel.

– I say straight out that these riots and unrest have been staged by the US and the occupying, fake Zionist regime and their agents, with the help of treacherous Iranians abroad, he says according to AP.
