(MENAFN- Trend News Agency)
BAKU, Azerbaijan, September 24. Riots will be
fought in Iran, Trend reports citing Iranian Ministry of Interior.
Iranian Interior Ministry said it regrets the death of Mahsa
Amini, expressing its condolences again, stating that the ministry
is seriously investigating this issue.
'Even if the requests of the protestors are justified, the cases
of violence and dangerous trends are actions contrary to law and
logic, and cannot be justified by anything,' the ministry said.
The protests in Iranian cities are ongoing, being prompted by
death of a 22-year old Iranian woman Mahsa Amini, allegedly after
being beaten by Iran's morality police while in custody for
violating the strict hijab-wearing rules. Amini's death on
September 16 triggered mass protests in Iran several days
Hijab was made mandatory for women in Iran shortly after the
country's 1979 revolution. Women who break the strict dress code
risk being arrested by Iran's morality police. Based on the dress
code, women are required to fully cover their hair in public and
wear long, loose-fitting clothes.
