    At least one person has been killed in protests in Iran against an increase in fuel prices.

    Several other people were injured as they tried to enter an oil refinery in the southern city of Sirjan.

    The price of fuel has been increased by up to 200 percent.

    The government says the rise is needed to combat fuel smuggling.
