Instagram disrupted across Iran amid protests

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Iranians saw their access to Instagram disrupted following days of mass protests over the death of a woman who was detained by the morality police. Instagram is one of the last social media platforms still available in the country. NetBlocks, a London-based group that monitors internet access, reported widespread disruptions. Witnesses inside Iran say they are unable to log on. There was no immediate comment from Iranian authorities on the disruption, which would limit the ability of protesters to organize and share information. In a separate development, the website of Iran’s Central Bank was briefly taken down as hackers claimed they had targeted the websites of several state agencies.
