Mahsa Amini, 22, beaten up by Iranian Morality Police for wearing “inappropriate hijab.” She went into a coma while detained in the police building and passed away two days later in the hospital. Possible cause of death: base skull fracture.
Mahsa Amini, 22, fell into a coma last week, hours after morality police held her for allegedly breaking hijab rules.
She was detained outside a metro station in Tehran on Tuesday by morality police. They accused her of breaking the law requiring women to cover their hair with a headscarf, and their arms and legs with loose clothing.
