Tehran, May 26 – A warrant officer of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards shot to death a young man in cold blood at an underground railway station in the city of Karaj, west of the Iranian capital, sparking off widespread clashes between angry protesters and security forces in several neighbourhoods of the city.

The officer, Asgar Najafi, fatally shot the man at a crowded Pol-e Fardis Metro station on Wednesday at approximately 7 pm, according to eye witnesses.

Police led Najafi away, as a crowd who gathered at the scene began shouting angry slogans against the clerical regime and the security forces.

The crowd, infuriated by the cold-blooded murder of a young man and the impunity of the murderer, attacked vehicles belonging to the security forces outside the station. The paramilitary police reacted by beating up some of the protesters with truncheons. Clashes between young protesters and security forces continued for several hours in different parts of the city.
