Footage posted on social media on Monday showed them shouting “shame on you” and throwing what appear to be empty water bottles at the man until he retreats through a gate.

In another video from Karaj, which is just to the west of the capital Tehran, students are heard shouting: “If we don’t unite, they will kill us one by one.”

Further protests by schoolgirls were reported on Tuesday in KarajTehran and the north-western cities of Saqez and Sanandaj….
