This footage purports to show protesters in Iran setting fire to the home of Ayatollah Khomeini.
Demonstrators are reported to have burned down Imam Khomeini’s Old House – now a history museum – in Khomeyn, Markazi Province, last night (17th November).
They reportedly chanted anti-regime slogans as they torched the property.
Ayatollah Khomeini, his two brothers, and three sisters were born in the house and received part of their primary education there.
Khomeini left the home aged 19 to pursue further education in Arak and later Qom. It has been a museum for the past three decades.
Ayatollah Khomeini (1900-1989) led the 1979 Iranian Revolution, founded the Islamic Republic of Iran, and served as its first supreme leader.
He is legally considered ‘inviolable’ in Iran, with Iranians regularly punished for insulting him.
The ongoing protests in Iran have so far claimed at least 342 lives, including 43 children, and injured at least 1,160, according to independent estimates.
Five protesters have been sentenced to death.
