Thousands of students have protested across Iran for the third weekend, with footage posted online showing hundreds of women in black veils raising their middle fingers in a sign of contempt for the authorities despite a deadly crackdown.

It came as security forces on Friday returned the body of another young woman to her family with suspicious injuries, nine days after she went missing during a protest in central Tehran.
