Khamenei orders Iran unrest victims treated as ?martyrs?

TEHRAN: Iran s supreme leader has agreed that people killed in nationwide unrest last month who had no role in fomenting it should be treated as martyrs with their families compensated.Ayatollah Ali Khamenei was responding to a report on the protests made by Iran s Supreme National Security Council, his official website said Wednesday. He ordered that its recommendations be implemented as soon as possible .Demonstrations erupted in Iran on November 15 against a surprise hike in petrol prices by as much as 200 percent. Iran has yet to give overall figures for the number of people killed or arrested when security forces moved in to quell the unrest that saw buildings torched and shops looted. Iran working on nuclear-capable missiles : Britain, France and Germany have accused Iran of developing nuclear-capable ballistic missiles in a letter dismissed by Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif on Thursday as a desperate falsehood . UN ambassadors for the three countries said in the letter to UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres that Iran s actions were inconsistent with the UN resolution enshrining a 2015 nuclear deal with Iran. But Zarif on Twitter said the Europeans were covering up their own miserable incompetence at abiding by the nuclear deal and were bowing to US bullying .
