TEHRAN (AFP) - Iranian security forces arrested 10 people who clashed with police in Tehran after they arrested a woman deemed to be badly veiled as part of a moral crackdown, a deputy police chief said on Friday.
"A sister was warned over her dress but she resisted. She refused to cooperate while being transferred to the patrol car and made a scene," the ISNA news agency quoted Commander Hossein Zolfaghari as saying.
"Some people were affected by the noise and clashed with the police and were eventually arrested," he said.
