And took off the scarves from their heads and waved them in the air shouting ‘Amar Marda Bad’. The gesture was apparently directed at Supreme Leader Ayat Ullah Ali Khamenei, who has ultimate control over all affairs of the state.

More schoolgirl demonstrations were reported in Tehran and the northwestern cities of Saqqez and Sanandaj on Tuesday.

Several students took pictures in their classrooms without covering their heads. Some were pointing obscenely at pictures of Ayat Ullah Ali Khamenei and the founder of the Islamic Republic, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, with their middle fingers.

The schoolgirl protests began after Ayatollah Khamenei, who holds the final say on all state affairs, broke his silence on the unrest, blaming the unrest on Iran’s staunch enemies, the United States and Israel.
