Father of Mahsa Amini arrestedThe father of Mahsa Jina Amini, the Kurdish Iranian woman whose death in police custody in Iran last year sparked a movement of nationwide anti-regime protests, was arrested Saturday on the first anniversary of his daughter’s death.

Security forces surrounded Amjad Amini’s home in the Iranian city of Saqez in anticipation of the anniversary of Mahsa’s death amid heightened security nationwide.

According to the Kurdistan Human Rights Network, Amjad Amini was warned against commemorating his daughter’s death before being released by officials. The Iranian government’s official news agency, IRNA, denied that Amjad Amini was arrested and did not confirm if he was briefly detained.

Mahsa Amini, who was 22 at the time of her death, was arrested by the Islamic Republic of Iran’s so-called morality police for an alleged breach of the country’s compulsory hijab laws and died in police custody Sept. 16 last year under suspicious circumstances.
