More than 100 protesters were killed by Iranian special forces on Sunday after demonstrators took refuge near a marsh in the port city of Mahshahr, according to The New York Times.
The reported incident marks one of the deadliest events in decades for the Islamic Republic, as anger continues to rage over hikes in energy prices imposed by the government.
According to The Times, Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps members opened fire on unarmed protesters with machine guns on November 18, killing an estimated 100 people, mostly men, as they attempted to hide in a nearby marsh.
