A 12-year-old girl who was shot in the head when police opened fire in Keraj, Iran, last March, succumbed to her wounds.
After the murder of a young Kurdish woman, Jina Amini, in Tehran in September 2022, state violence to suppress the unprecedented popular uprising is escalating.
A 12-year-old girl, Melika Borji, succumbed to her wounds less than four months after being shot twice by Iranian police forces in the city of Karaj on March 16.
The girl was shot in the head with a firearm in Keraj, in the province of Elborz. According to reports from Iran, she died in hospital.
Hundreds of people have been killed by Iranian state forces since September.
