Iran’s head of state Ayatollah Ali Khamenei reportedly tweeted his support of the #BlackLivesMatter protests that have denounced the recent police killings of black people in America.

A series of tweets came from Khamenei’s account that made clear references to the ongoing movement in the U.S. in an effort to call attention to the racial biases that exist in law enforcement and the justice system.
