Iran Athlete Says 'No Regrets' After Losing Eye At Protest

An Iranian archer who lost sight in her left eye after being shot by security forces has said she has “no regrets” about joining nationwide protests. Iranian authorities have cracked down on more than four months of anti-regime protests sparked by the September 16 death in custody of Mahsa Amini, arrested for allegedly violating strict dress rules for women. Kosar Khoshnoudikia, a member of Iran’s national archery team, had been shot at a rally last year in her hometown of Kermanshah, in the Kurdish-populated west, said the Norway-based rights group Hengaw. “I have felt no regrets for being there on that day, at that time,” Khoshnoudikia said.
