Iranians in Turkey protest over Mahsa Amini death

STORY: The crowd chanted slogans and held up banners, standing in solidarity with anti-government protesters in Iran.

The demonstration in Istanbul came a day after Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi said that the death of Mahsa Amini had "saddened" everyone in the Islamic Republic, but warned that "chaos" would not be accepted amid spreading violent protests.

Amini's death two weeks ago has sparked anti-government protests across Iran, with protesters often calling for the end of the Islamic clerical establishment's more than four decades in power.

Angry demonstrations have spread to over 80 cities nationwide since the September 13 death of 22-year-old Amini, after she was arrested for "unsuitable attire" by the morality police who enforce the Islamic Republic's strict dress code.
