Hundreds of students protested near Islamic Azad University in Tehran for a second consecutive day on Sunday, December 30, over a recent deadly bus crash on the campus that left at least ten students dead. The students reportedly demanded the resignations of certain university officials and the replacement of the university's bus fleet, among other requests. Similar student protests are possible in Tehran over the coming days. A heightened security presence and localized traffic disruptions are to be expected near demonstration sites.
Iran features one of the world's highest rates of road fatalities per capita, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
Individuals in Tehran are advised to avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, monitor developments to the situation, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
