Iran says 230 killed in November protests: state media
"During these events 230 people were killed, six of whom were official agents and security forces," said Mojtaba Zolnour, head of the parliament's national security and foreign affairs committee.
"Twenty percent of them were forces keeping order and peace and seven percent were those killed in direct confrontations with security forces," he was quoted as saying by IRNA.
The protests erupted on November 15 in Tehran and rapidly spread to at least 40 cities and towns, with petrol pumps torched, police stations attacked and shops looted, before being put down by security forces amid a near-total internet blackout.
Officials had repeatedly denied death tolls given by foreign media and human rights groups as "lies", and passed responsibility of reporting on it between different state bodies.
The United States has also said that more than 1,000 people were killed during the protests.
