Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said Sunday that government bodies must provide “space for criticism” as he sought to head off days of unrest, but warned protesters that violence was unacceptable. “Criticism is different to violence and destroying public property,” he said in a cabinet meeting, according to the state broadcaster. “Government bodies should provide space for legal criticism and protest,” Rouhani said in his first public comments since the protests began on Thursday.
