London, Mar. 12 – Banks, police cars, and government buildings were set on fire as violent clashes erupted on Saturday between security forces and angry residents in the north-western Iranian town of Piranshahr, according to eye-witnesses contacted by telephone.

Protests began after agents of the State Security Forces (SSF) shot and killed a young man in his car at a stop-and-search point.

At least five police vehicles were set on fire during the clashes between young protesters and security agents.

Reports from the Kurdish city of Mahabad in north-western Iran said that widespread clashes had broken out on Friday between residents and security forces after a detained man was shot at point blank by security agents.
