Since Thursday, tens of thousands of protesters have formed the largest outpouring of government opposition since the volatile 2009 presidential elections. The scale and ferocity of the protests had clerical leaders in Tehran struggling Tuesday to respond to what is likely the most serious internal crisis the country has faced this decade.
"Tens of Thousands of People Have Protested in Iran. Here’s Why." is from the January 03, 2018 World section of The Washington Post. It was written by Marwa Eltagouri and narrated by Sam Scholl.
