Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife took to the streets Saturday in Ottawa with other demonstrators to show their support for protesters in Iran.

The demonstration in Ottawa attended by Trudeau and Sophie Grégoire Trudeau was one of several held in Canada and around the world Saturday in support of Iranians who are protesting the death in September of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini while in police custody.  She had been arrested for wearing her head scarf improperly. 

In Iran Saturday, Hossein Salami, head of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, warned protesters not to stage any more demonstrations.   

He said the demonstrations were a “sinister plan … hatched … in the White House and the Zionist regime.” 

Iranians ignored his warning and took to the streets again on Saturday.
