STORY: The Acting U.N. Commissioner for Human Rights Nada Al-Nashif on Tuesday (September 20) called for an impartial probe into the death of Amini. Her death has sparked nationwide anger and protests in several Iranian cities.
A video posted by Twitter user Faezeh Afshan showed her cutting her long locks off with a pair of scissors. “You see this?! A 22 year old girl was killed by ‘Hijab Police’ because she wasn't wearing her hijab properly! She wasn't the first, and won't be the last!” said Afshan in her post.
The circumstances surrounding Amini's death are still unclear. The White House has condemned the incident, calling on Iran to end what it calls "violence against women for exercising their fundamental freedoms".
