Iran has deployed an all-female police unit armed with assault rifles in a bid to quell the protests that have swept across the country in recent days.
The protests erupted following the death of Mahsa Amini, 22, in police custody after she was detained for allegedly failing to adhere to the country's strict hijab rules.
