The death last week of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, who was arrested by vice squad in Tehran for ‘inappropriate dress’, sparked anger over issues including freedom in the Islamic Republic and a battered economy Sanctions.

NetBlocks also reported a “nationwide loss of connectivity” on the Iranian mobile provider and another company’s network.

WhatsApp’s servers were down across several internet service providers, hours after Instagram’s services were blocked, London-based NetBlocks said.

Data from the group shows a near total disruption of internet service in parts of western Iran’s Kurdistan province since Monday, while the capital, Tehran, and other parts of the country have also been facing disruption since Friday, when protests first erupted.

Two residents of Tehran and southern Iran said they could only send text and not photos on WhatsApp and Instagram seemed completely blocked.
