Iran has been rocked by its most significant anti-government protests since a disputed presidential election in 2009. Six days of unrest across the country have resulted in more than 20 deaths and hundreds of arrests.

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei accused the country's enemies of meddling in recent protest rallies. Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, called Tuesday for an emergency U.N. meeting to discuss the crisis.
