Videos uploaded to social media show Iranians protesting across the country.

Footage shows plumes of smoke rising into the night’s sky and women defiantly dancing as they burn their veils to the applause of the crowd.

The protests come just days after Mahsa Amini, 22, died following her arrest for allegedly violating Islamic dress codes last Tuesday.

Reports claim Amini was beaten and sustained injuries during her arrest which led her to fall into a coma. 

Authorities in Tehran claim Amini fell ill as she waited with another woman being held by religious police.
