Iran state TV says ’rioters’ shot and killed amid protests

Iranian state television Tuesday acknowledged security forces shot and killed ’rioters’ in cities amid recent protests over the spike in government-set gasoline prices. The acknowledgment came in a television package that criticized international Farsi-language channels for their reporting on the crisis. Amnesty International has estimated at least 208 people were killed in the protests.
