“The chants of death to Khamenei are true,” a Canadian citizen has told Huffington Post live-logger Nico Pitney. “I witnessed people’s fear of the Basij disappear. I saw an 80 year old Chadori woman with rocks in her hands call for the execution of Khamenei and all Basij. A group of Basij were surrounded and forced into a building, [and then] the front was blocked with garbage and set on fire. The Basij opened fire on the crowd with what I assume were blanks. The crowd dispersed for a moment and then came back with a fury. That’s when the Molotov cocktails came out. When I moved on the building was on fire. An hour later when I passed by again there wasn’t much of a building left. There was full-blown war.”
