(Iraq Now News)- Deadly protests in the southern Iranian city of Kazerun continued for a second day following the deaths of two protesters Wednesday.

Protesters aimed their wrath at the Iranian regime following a decision to split the city of nearly 150,000 into two townships, Fox News reported.

“After anti-riot forces were dispatched to the city from Shiraz, the people charged at them and hand-to-hand clashes ensued,” a press release from the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) said.

NCRI is a coalition of influential Iranian opposition groups.

The protests have left at least two people dead and six others injured.The NCRI press release said that protesters had set fire to a trailer belonging to regime security forces and that four police vehicles had also been set ablaze.

It said that parts of the city looked “war-torn.” It said smoke had filled the air close to the main square following the burning of tires by protesters. It also noted the Internet and mobile phones have been cut off.
