Iran's President Ebrahim Raisi praises country's rights, freedoms

President Ebrahim Raisi praised Iran's Islamic Republic as a guarantor of rights and freedoms, defending the ruling system amid a crackdown on anti-government protests that the United Nations says has cost more than 300 lives.

A top state security body said that 200 people, including members of the security forces, had lost their lives in the unrest, a figure that was significantly lower than the figure given by the world body and rights groups.

The protests, in their third month, were ignited by the death of 22 year-old Kurdish woman Mahsa Amini in the custody of morality police who enforced strict mandatory hijab rules.
