Internet watchdog NetBlocks revealed that officials blocked access to Meta Platforms on Wednesday amid protests over the death of a woman in police, residents and Internet custody.

The death last week of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, who was arrested by the moral police in Tehran for “unsuitable clothing”, sparked anger over issues such as freedom in the Islamic Republic and a faltering economy over sanctions.

NetBlocks also reported a “nationwide connectivity loss” on the Iranian mobile mail provider and another company’s network.

WhatsApp servers were shut down across multiple internet providers, hours after Instagram’s services were blocked, London-based NetBlocks said.

The group’s data shows a near-total disruption of internet service in parts of Kurdistan province in western Iran since Monday, while the capital Tehran and other parts of the country have also suffered disruptions since Friday, when protests erupted.

Two residents in Tehran and southern Iran said they could only send text messages and not images on WhatsApp and that Instagram appeared to be completely blocked.
