Iran Protests: Videos Show Protesters Clash With Police Amid Worst Drought In 50 Years

Iran's worst drought in 50 years has sparked major protests across the oil-rich southwestern state of Khuzestan. Security forces have been deployed to disperse demonstrators, who are demanding access to clean water and reliable electricity. Several people have been reported killed over a week of protests. Iranian officials have blamed criminals and separatists for the unrest, which comes as hardliner president-elect Ebrahim Raisi prepares to take office following his election victory in June.
