Mehran Samak Age
He was 27 years old.
Iranian authorities have shot and killed a man celebrating the country’s elimination from the 2022 World Cup, according to a human rights group, as the Islamic Republic intensified its attempt to quash dissent in the wake of Mahsa Amini’s death in September.
The Oslo-based Iran Human Rights said 27-year-old Mehran Samak was one of many citizens celebrating the loss of Iran — the national team symbolizes the regime to many Iranians — across the country after the United States claimed a one-nil victory in Qatar.
“He was shot in the head by state forces when he went out to celebrate the Islamic Republic’s loss … in Bandar Anzali,” the organization said on Twitter.
“The Islamic Republic’s Forensic Medical Organisation is refusing to return [his] body to his family despite a crowd of people gathering outside the building to support them.”
The United Nations says more than 300 people have been killed so far and 14,000 arrested in the protests that followed Ms. Amini’s death in custody.
