Tehran has brutally cracked down on protests against the Islamist regime with security forces across the country targeting women with shotgun fire to their faces, breasts and genitals, according to a report in London’s Guardian newspaper.
A young woman detained by Iran’s “morality police” died while being detained in September.
“The United States is working with our allies and partners around the world to hold Iran accountable for the abuses it is committing against its own people, notably peaceful protesters, women and girls,” Mr. Sullivan said.
He added, “The recent horrifying executions in Tehran only strengthen our resolve to expand this growing consensus and pursue all possible mechanisms of accountability against the Iranian regime and its officials responsible for these atrocities.”
The Biden administration had spent weeks lobbying other countries to adopt the measure as part of its anti-regime campaign.
