Iran to clamp down on women dressed like models

TEHRAN --  Iran will next week launch an annual summer crackdown on women, as well as men, whose dress is deemed to be out of line with its Islamic laws, the media reported Tuesday.

The deputy head of Tehran's police Hossein Sadjedi-Nia warned that women "dressed up like models" with overly short mantos (coats), tight outer garments, and inadequate headscarves would face being apprehended in the crackdown.

"The police forces are going to act against women who dress up like models in town. This drive is no different from the campaigns of previous years," he said.

"The arrested women will be taken to four centers. They will have to give a written engagement not to repeat the offense and can then leave when their family brings the appropriate clothing," he explained.
