Iran has sentenced another man to death over involvement in anti-regime protests sparked by the death of Mahsa Amini, APA reports citing AlArabiya.

A man identified as Arshia Takdastan was sentenced to death after being convicted of the capital charges of “corruption on earth” and “waging war against God,” says the source.

Takdastan is described as a “leader” of protests in the northern city of Nowshahr, adding that his charges included “destruction of public property, inciting citizens to create insecurity and collusion to commit crimes against” the country’s national security.
