TEHRAN, June 21 (Reuters) - Iranian state television said "a few" people were killed inside a Tehran mosque set on fire during street protests on Saturday evening.
Sunday’s television report blamed "rioters" for the incident.
"Lolagar mosque was set on fire and unfortunately a few of our citizens inside the mosque were martyred," state television said, referring to a mosque in southwest Tehran.
"Rioters ... disrespected the nation’s sanctuaries ... a few mosques were violated," it said. (Reporting by Zahra Hosseinian; Writing by Fredrik Dahl; Editing by Louise Ireland)
