The situation in Iran has only got worse since protests began almost a week ago. Mostly peaceful demonstrations turned violent.

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

But it's unclear who is behind them. All we know is it isn't the reformists who traditionally lead demonstrations in Iran.

The international community has been quick to condemn the violence, and the US wants the United Nations to act.

How will Iran deal with growing public anger?
