The world is closely watching Iran's response to protests in the country that left at least 21 people dead, the United States said Friday after it called an emergency meeting at the UN security council to show solidarity with the demonstrators.

"We are very disturbed by the way the authorities have responded to the protests", the four Special Rapporteurs said in their statement, released by the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.
There is a long history of USA bullying at the UN, and the case of the Iranian protest was a preposterous example of interference in the purely internal affairs of a nation.
She added: "Freedom and human dignity can not be separated from peace and security". "It is a powerful exhibition of courageous people who have become so fed up with their oppressive government that they are willing to risk their lives in protest".
Not all council members see a need to weigh in.
