DUBAI — Iranian workers who went on strike on Monday in Assaluye petrochemical plant were angered by a dispute over wages and were not protesting against the death of a woman in police custody, a regional official said on Tuesday.

Governor Ali Hashemi said some Iranians tried to hijack the workers’ protests by chanting anti-government slogans, according to Iran’s Young Journalists Club News (YJC) telegram account. (Reporting by Dubai Newsroom, Editing by William Maclean)
