Iranian law enforcement authorities have arrested a number of Western citizens who took part in the unrest in the country, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kanaani said.

"A significant number of citizens of Western countries were present and took part in the unrest, some of them were arrested," IRNA news agency quoted Kanaani as saying.

Riots and protests have been ongoing in Iran since mid-September over the death of a young Iranian woman, Mahsa Amini, after she was detained by the vice police. The street riots take place mainly in the provinces of Gilan, Khuzestan, Sistan and Baluchestan, Tehran and Kurdistan. Iranian authorities accuse Western countries of supporting the protesters, who in their media replicate messages of a subversive, anti-Iranian nature, as well as calling for the overthrow of the government in Iran. Rioters are systematically attacking and killing members of the security forces - police, IRGC, as well as members of one of the major military structures - Basij.
