Clashes occured, today, in the northern cities of Ghaem-Shahr and Sari, near the Caspian Sea, due to shortage of heating gas.
Angry mobs set several official buildings ablaze, and clashed with brutal militiamen sent from Babol in order to disperse the crowd.
Slogans against the Islamic regime were shouted, by angry residents, and reports are stating about tens of injured or arrested.
Officials, sent in rush, have tried to calm the residents, but the situation is tense, and road blocks have been installed in order to try to control the situation.
The gas shortages started from about ten days ago, despite an unprecedented cold wave that has paralyzed most Iranian cities and has resulted in several deaths.
