    A grieving Iranian mother now faces 100 lashes after she was convicted for protesting against the death of her son who was shot in the heart by security forces during a demonstration over the rising price of fuel in 2019. Mahboubeh Ramezani, the mother of 18-year-old Pejman Gholipour who was killed during deadly protests, was arrested on July 11 and is currently being held in the infamous Evin prison in Tehran. Her surviving son, Peyman Gholipour, said the Iranian authorities have 'constantly intimidated' Ramezani because she has never stopped calling for justice and accountability for Pejman's death. Ramezani was sentenced to 100 lashes by the Iranian regime a few months ago in absentia - but she will now serve that sentence following her arrest.

    By TOM FOREMAN Jr., DAVID CRARY and JOHN LEICESTER RAEFORD, N.C. (AP) — Protesters streamed into the nation’s capital Saturday for what was expected to be the city’s largest demonstration yet against police brutality, while George Floyd was mourned in his North Carolina hometown, where hundreds of mourners lined up to squeeze into a church to pay their respects. Military vehicles and officers in fatigues closed off much of downtown Washington to traffic ahead of the planned march, which authorities estimated would attract up to 200,000 people outraged by Floyd’s death 12 days ago at the hands of police in Minneapolis. Large protests also took place across the U.S. and in major cities overseas, including London, Paris, Berlin and Sydney, Australia. In Raeford, the small town near Fayetteville where Floyd was born 46 years ago, a long line of people formed outside a church, waiting to enter in small groups for a chance to look at his coffin. A private memorial service was scheduled for later in the day. The line of people waiting to view the coffin included families...
    ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Turkish police on Monday dispersed a demonstration by a group wanting to commemorate an activist who was killed during nationwide anti-government protests seven years ago, the state-run Anadolu news agency reported. At least 21 people were detained. The group gathered near a park in central Ankara where 26-year-old Ethem Sarisuluk was injured in the head by a gunshot on June 1, 2013. He died in hospital 14 days later. A police officer was later convicted over his death. Millions of people across Turkey took to the streets to denounce President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s increasingly authoritarian leadership in May and June 2013. The protests were sparked by opposition to government plans to redevelop Gezi Park, adjacent to Istanbul’s main Taksim square. Sarisuluk was among a dozen protesters who were killed. Thousands of others were injured. Erdogan has described the protests as a “coup” attempt against his government. Anadolu Agency said authorities declared the demonstration to be illegal. Officers broke up the demonstration after the group failed to heed calls to disperse, the agency reported. Copyright © 2020...

    George Floyd's son attended a peaceful march in memory of his father on Sunday in Texas and stressed that violence will not "solve anything." "I'm really excited about all this. Everyone is coming out and showing him love. I love this. My heart is really touched by all this," Quincy Mason Floyd told local CBS affiliate KBTX. Floyd is a resident of Bryan, Texas, where he attended the demonstration. "Tearing up things, it's not going to solve anything. My dad is in peace, and we have to be the ones to deal with all this stress. It's going to be tough to get over this day by day," he said. Floyd noted that he had not been close to his dad for some time and did not immediately realize the video was of his father. But his mother pointed it out to him before the name was circulated widely in the media and online. "I didn't recognize who it was until Mom called and told me. She said, 'Do you know who that guy was?' I said no. She said,...

    By DAVID BAUDER NEW YORK (AP) — A Fox News reporter was pummeled and chased by protesters who had gathered outside the White House early Saturday as part of nationwide unrest following the death of George Floyd. For several journalists across the country, the demonstrations were taking an ominous, dangerous turn. A television reporter in Columbia, S.C., was hurt by a thrown rock Saturday and a journalist in Minneapolis was shot in the thigh by a rubber bullet. A television news photographer in Pittsburgh said he was beaten by demonstrators, and police in Louisville, Kentucky, apologized after an officer fired what appeared to be pepper bullets at a television news crew. Fox’s Leland Vittert was rattled following the Washington attack that he said was clearly targeted at his news organization. “We took a good thumping,” he told The Associated Press. A live shot he was doing was interrupted by a group of protesters who shouted obscenities directed at Fox. Flanked by two security guards, he and photographer Christian Galdabini walked away from Washington’s Lafayette Park trailed by an angry group...
