new York Iran's President Ebrahim Raisi has accused the West of double standards when it comes to human rights. Western states positioned themselves on a case in Iran that is still under investigationbut remained silent "about the murder of dozens of women" in another country, Raisi said in his speech to the UN General Assembly in New York on Wednesday, without being more specific about which country he was referring to.

Overlooking the Iran Raisi may have meant the criticism of the Iranian government's actions in the case of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini. The young woman was arrested by the vice squad a week ago because of her "un-Islamic outfit".

What exactly happened after that is unclear, but Amini fell into a coma and died in a hospital on Friday. Protests then broke out in numerous cities.

Critics accuse the morality police of using violence. The police firmly deny the allegations. The government ordered an investigation.
