The Facts

Iran’s top leaders met late on Saturday as nationwide anti-government protests over Mahsa Amini’s death entered their fourth week.
Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi met with Parliament speaker Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf and Judiciary Chief Gholam-Hossein Mohseni Ejei in the presidential building in Tehran.
A statement published on President Raisi’s website reads, “At the moment, the Iranian society needs unity among all groups regardless of language, religion or ethnicity to overcome hostility and division by Iran’s enemies.”
Meanwhile, digital activists supporting the women-led protests hacked a live state media broadcast for a “few moments,” interrupting footage of Iran’s supreme leader Khamenei meeting state officials.
The broadcast was interrupted with pictures of Amini and three other women killed in the protests. Hacker-activist group Edalat-e Ali has claimed responsibility for the hacking.
