Another night of protests in Iran to demand justice for Mahsa Amini, the 22-year-old who died after being arrested by the Tehran moral police for wearing the Islamic veil incorrectly. As the streets of the capital fill with protesters, the authorities have decided to restrict access to Instagram and WhatsApp. NetBlocks made it known by pointing out that this is the largest restriction on social media nationwide since 2019, when internet access was restricted amid the fuel protests. NetBlocks reported an almost total interruption of the Internet service in some areas of the Kurdistan province in western Iran, where Amini was born, and in the capital Tehran, where the young woman was arrested.
