Tehran, Iran, Feb. 25 – Twenty students have been arrested at the Industrial University of Shahrood, northern Iran, in the course of a protest which has entered its sixth day, Iran Focus has learnt.

More than 3,000 students took part in the protest in the town’s main street on Saturday and Sunday, calling on the government to pay attention to their demands regarding the university’s administration, a student activist requesting anonymity told Iran Focus in an email interview.

The protest originally began on Wednesday, and lasted for three days on campus. With university officials refusing to listen to their demands, the students took to the streets starting on Saturday.

The protesters were especially angry at gas shortages in Shahrood and the temporary closure of the university and cancellation of exams.

It is not know where the 20 detained students are currently being held.
