Iran’s security forces and pro-regime militias attacked students at one of the nation’s most prestigious universities as part of a widespread effort to quell a widespread outbreak of political protests sparked by the September 16 death of a young woman in the custody of the morality police.

Uniformed security forces and ideologically fervent Basij militiamen loyal to the regime could be seen in videos attacking students at Tehran’s elite Sharif University of Technology, a storied engineering and science-focused institution that has produced graduates coveted by firms and institutions worldwide.
