IRAN: TENSIONS RISES IN CITY AFTER DEATH OF YOUNG KURDISH MAN

Erbil, 14 July (AKI) - Shops and businesses in the Kurdish Iranian city of Mahabad remained shut on Thursday in a protest, the latest by residents, against the killing of a young Kurdish man by Iranian security forces last week. The shooting of Shawna Qadiri on Saturday, 9 July, has raised tensions in Mahabad, prompting Kurdish authorities in the Iraqi city of Erbil to discuss teh incident.
Mahabad was the site of the first independent Kurdish republic in history. Formed in 1946, its existence ended after just nine months when the then Shah of Iran, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, abolished it followed by the retreat of Soviet forces from Iranian territory at the end of World War II.
