From a visitor in a foreign city, then tortured prisoner, tortured and finally… dead.
Mahsha Amini let some of her hair show outside her hijab and paid for it with her own life. She was visiting her family in Tehran when she was arrested by special police and taken to prison. Then the young woman fell into a coma and died.
Iranian police only called it an “unfortunate incident”, but activists say Amini suffered a severe blow to the head three days after her arrest.
