Female students clash with Iran security forces on campus

Female students clashed with security agents in a Tehran university after a heated dispute over Iran’s austere dress regulations for women.

The students from Tehran’s Industrial Aeronautic University defied agents of the State Security Forces when the latter harassed them on campus and tried to arrest them for violating the dress regulations.

There have been increasing student protests on university campuses across Iran against a recent government clampdown on young people and women.
