Head of Iran's Revolutionary Guards announces 'end of the sedition'
Iran's Revolutionary Guards said Wednesday that the unrest that had rocked Iran over several days was at an end, and that no more than 15,000 people had taken part nationwide.
"Today we can announce the end of the sedition," Mohammad Ali Jafari, commander of the Revolutionary Guards, said on its website, in reference to the protests that have rattled the country since last week, and during which at least 21 people were killed.
"There were a maximum of 1,500 people in each place and the number of trouble-makers did not exceed 15,000 people nationwide," he added.
