Tehran said on Monday that it had evidence that Western countries were behind the protests that have roiled the country.

The attention of the UN Human Rights Council is on Iran after the country allegedly killed a nuclear scientist with a magnetic bomb attached to his car.

The death of 22-year-old Kurdish Iranian woman Mahsa Amini after her arrest for “inappropriate attire” sparked protests, among the most significant challenges to Iran’s religious elite since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

Nasser Kanaani, a ministry spokesman, said they have specific information showing that the US, possibly other Western countries, and some of America’s friends were involved in the protests. As of writing, though, there were no definitive threats from the Iranian government proving US or Pentagon’s active intervention in the protests.
