Tehran (AP) - Because of nationwide protests against higher gasoline prices, the internet in Iran remains closed indefinitely. The Internet will only be switched back on when security in the country is fully restored, said a spokesman for the National Security Council of the news agency Isna. Safety in the country has the highest priority. If necessary, everything is sacrificed for it. The riots started on Friday. According to Iranian media reports, the situation has calmed down in most cities. But observers suspect that this is not the case yet.
