Dozens of Iranian college students were arrested in the city of Qazvin, Iranian officials said, in what observers say is part of a wider crack-down on “immoral behavior”.
According to the Mizan news agency, the students were arrested at an “immodest” graduation party which included both men and women. The students were questioned over their involvement in the event, then given 99 lashes – all within hours of their arrest.
Esmail Sadeghi Niaraki, the local prosecutor in Qazvin, said the female students were “dancing and jubilating” while “half naked”, and that police had been tipped off about the party. MORE
