Women in Iran will no longer be allowed to travel by plane if they are “improperly veiled”, according to an announcement by Hassan Mehri, commander of Iran’s Airport Police, who said that these new instructions will soon be implemented.

According to a transcript by the state-run ISNA news agency on July 1, he said: “We have received official instructions on dealing with women who remove their veil and Judiciary officials will also support the police in this regard.
