Iranian woman killed for two hair stands? U.S sanctions ‘Morality Police’
The U.S imposes sanctions on Iran's "Morality Police" over the "abuse of Iranian women". The Biden administration has also blamed the "Morality Police" for the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, which has sparked protests across Iran. The U.S has sanctioned not only the "Morality Police", but also the heads of the Iranian Army's ground forces and Iran's Minister of Intelligence. Hitting back at the U.S, the Iranian president, Ebrahim Raisi, has accused the west of hypocrisy. While Raisi has called for a probe. Mahsa Amini's father has accused the officials of lying and trying to cover up the case. Mahsa's father, Amjad Amini, said that his daughter was killed for two strands of hair. Protests over Amini's death have turned into a movement of sorts in the country. With no end in sight, the Iranian army says it will "confront the enemies of Islamic regime.'' At least 31 people have been killed in this protest so far. This report has full details.
