Iranian President Raisi’s memorial was muted due to public discontent

Thousands of Iranians mourned President Ebrahim Raisi in the city of Tabriz on Tuesday after he was killed along with his foreign minister and seven others in a helicopter crash near the border with Azerbaijan over the weekend.

State television broadcast live images of mourners, many of them dressed in black, beating their chests as a truck covered in white flowers carrying the coffins wrapped in the national flag drove slowly through the crowd.

“Everyone has come to say goodbye to the martyred president and his associates, regardless of their faction, ethnicity or language,” Tabriz MP Masoud Pezeshkian said.
