The situation in Iran has only gotten worse since protests began almost a week ago, as mostly peaceful demonstrations have turned violent.

At least 22 people have been killed, and hundreds more arrested. Protests about rising prices and financial struggles now appear to have become anti-establishment in tone.

The international community has been quick to condemn the violence, with the United States asking the United Nations to intervene.

How will Iran deal with growing public anger?
