The Revolutionary Guard killed three Iranians participating in a Saturday night demonstration in Iran's Loerstan province, Saudi Arabia's Al-Arabiya network reported.
The incident has not been officially confirmed.
The string of protests, which began Thursday night, call for an end to the Iranian government's policies and corruption.
Those supporting the Iranian government claim the protesters' main complaint is rampant unemployment and the corruption Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is currently fighting.
According to Fars, seventy students protested at Tehran University, throwing rocks at local police and chanting "Death to the dictator."
Reuters reported that protesters elsewhere in Tehran had also been arrested, and in the western towns of Shahr-e Kord and Dorud, Iranian authorities used tear gas...
Meanwhile, Iranian media claimed the demonstrations were the responsibility of US, British, and Israeli spies seeking to "stir unrest" in the country. The state-controlled IRINN said it had been banned from covering the demonstrations.

She is my hero today!
Mullahs, we’re coming for that $150B donut money!!!
Remember when the brave protestors in Iran tried to bring down their horrible government during the Obama administration, and that girl who was gunned down by soldiers? They carried her portrait for days after her murder. Obama ignored it.
actually, she’s in the mountains on a hike. It’s common to see women with no head covering there.
This is the brave woman
Their assassinations are on Obongo and his Iranian born puppet master ValJar. I can make outrageous clams just like the the Media. Mine are much more likely to be spot on true.
Obama must be running Iran now.
Some Italian language media outlets are reporting 6 dead.
Maybe we should send Iran some of our special forces to even the score for the boat incident under Obama.
Hey millenials - shes who is protesting and Trumps on her side.
Why isn’t Hussein over there telling the Persian peeps to avoid getting so Oui-Oui’d up?
Rouhani fighting corruption. That’s rich.
...Some of this weeks protests were directed against financial scandals linked to unauthorised lending institutions which collapsed with the loss of hundreds of thousands of accounts...
The body count will continue to grow.
Remember It’s Islam ,No Freedom
I can’t see where a destabilized Iran would be a good thing. Look what happened in Libya, Iraq, and Syria.....ISIS will have a new haven if there isn’t a strong-arm government.
A Ceaucescu moment would be the best stocking stuffer ever. But I don’t see it happening. The mullahs have much more public support than the shah. And the ‘79 revolution had the Ayatollah Khomeini as the face of the revolution, a visible leader who led and inspired them, evil as he was. Inasmuch as he was leading from France, the Shah couldn’t touch him.
Any movement to topple the Islamic Republic must have a face and millions to take to the streets in his/her name. If not, it will end up like 2009-—much ado about nothing.
A destabilized Iran, no. But the Iranian personality is more balanced than the Arab. They’ve been civilized for millenia before the coming of Islam and then the Mongols, and they don’t stay destabilized for long. Somewhat like the Chinese. As such, they might just turn out alright when the dust settles.
You know whereof you speak.
