Protest-hit Iran says 'enemy conspiracy' defeatedIranian President Hassan Rouhani said Wednesday the country’s people had defeated an “enemy conspiracy” behind a wave of violent protests and were celebrating their victory. Rouhani blamed the deadly unrest on “anarchists” who took to the streets “based on a plot that the region’s reactionary, the Zionists and Americans hatched”, referring respectively to Saudi Arabia, Israel and the US. The demonstrations erupted in sanctions-hit Iran on Friday, hours after the price of petrol was raised by as much as 200 percent.
