Minister Denies 1 Person Killed in SW Water Protests

A minister has dismissed media reports that protests over shortages of potable water in a southwest province late on Saturday had resulted in one death.
Only one person was injured in a shooting incident and taken to hospital, Interior Minister Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli told a press briefing in Tehran on Sunday, IRNA reported.  
He was referring to protests in the city of Khorramshahr in Khuzestan Province over increasing salinity of drinking water resources that turned violent as demonstrators clashed with police and law enforcement officers.
IRNA said protesters threw stones and other objects at police, who responded with tear gas to disperse the crowd.
