Mahsa Amini wasn't killed, Iranian minister slams the West

Iran’s deputy foreign minister Ali Bagheri Kani has claimed that Mahsa Amini was not killed, she passed away. The minister blamed the West for building a "baseless and fallacious atmosphere" about the demonstrations in Iran and leading to tensions and chaos in his country. We have seen the atmosphere created by some western media with regard to the development in Iran. This atmosphere is baseless and fallacious. We are seeing the rights of the Iranian nation being violated by these western powers," he said. Kani blamed the West for "killing of Iranian daughters".

The western powers don't talk about the people of Afghanistan, Palestine or Yemen. They don't denounce or condemn these actions. Who are the real killers of these people?" the minister said. Iran has formed a panel under its interior ministry to investigate deaths due to recent protests, he said. Kani added that around 50 police officers have been killed so far and hundreds have been injured in the protests that have rocked the country since the death of Amini. The death of the 22-year-old in police custody in September this year, triggering massive protests in the country and globally. Kani  is currently in India as part of political consultations between the countries.
