Via Lara Setrakian:

Police brutallly beating people, totally chaos. It was hard to get any info, state TV stations were playing sports games.

abt 3,000 people were in Engelab Sq. we saw hundreds of military & basijis in plainclothes. women screaming, gunshots fired

there's unbelievable tension in the city, it is a place in turmoil. you can feel the society is deeply divided.
