Iran says it has provided evidence to countries whose nationals it claims participated in unrest that has rocked the country in recent weeks.

“Regarding foreign nationals detained in Iran in connection with riots, information, evidence and explanations have been provided to the countries concerned,” foreign ministry spokesman Nasser Kanani tells reporters.

At the beginning of October, Iranian authorities announced the arrest of nine foreign nationals who it claims were connected to the wave of protests triggered by the death of Mahsa Amini.

Those arrested include citizens of France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Poland.
