Mahsa Amini passed away on Friday after being arrested on Tuesday and beaten by the morality police

Protests by women over headscarves erupted in Iran during the funeral of Mahsa Amini, who died after being arrested by the “moral police” in Tehran on Tuesday.

Mahsa Amini, 22, died on Friday, days after her arrest, and witnesses said police beat her after they drove her into a car, allegations that Iranian police denied.

Some women reportedly took off their hijab (head covering) at Mahsa’s funeral, in protest of being forced to wear the hijab.

Mourners at the funeral chanted “Death to the dictator,” and videos afterwards showed police firing into a crowd.
