The death of a 22-year-old girl who was in the custody of the so-called “morality police” in Iran has sparked a strong wave of protests across the country.

Masha Amini was arrested last week for allegedly failing to comply with strict regulations on women’s veiling.

Witnesses said Amini was beaten inside a police van after being detained in Tehran.

Police denied the allegations, saying the woman “suffered a sudden heart problem.”
