A 16-year-old Iranian girl died after security forces beat her in her classroom for refusing to sing an anthem praising Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

In addition to the teenager, identified by the media as Asra Panahi, other students also declined to praise Khamenei with the song, but there are no other deaths besides that of the young woman.

The incident occurred last week in the northwestern city of Ardabil, when security forces raided Shaheed Girls High School, according to the Hindustan Times.

Asra Panahi reportedly died from injuries sustained at a local hospital, citing the Coordinating Council of Iranian Professional Teachers' Associations.

Asra Panahi's death comes at a critical time when Iran is witnessing anti-government protests that began more than a month ago.

In Iran, women protested against the regime following the death in custody of 22-year-old Mahsa Amin. Mahsa Amini was arrested by the notorious Iranian deputy team for not wearing the hijab.
