Hundreds of Iranian women gathered in front of the UN office in Tehran on May 25 to protest the Saudi-led airstrikes against Yemen.
The women said they were protesting because they want to support Yemeni women affected by the conflict. The Saudi-led coalition has killed women and children in Yemen and has blocked humanitarian aid to the country.
Protestors held placards condemning the strikes, and they urged the UN to put an end to the violence.
