London, 26 May - The Iranian Regime claims that 10 of its provinces have crossed what they refer to as a “Hijab red line” meaning that more women there are improperly veiled according to the Regime’s modesty police.

Ahmad Sehat Ghol, a director in Iran’s Islamic Media Organization, told the semi-official Tasnim news agency, on Wednesday that this constituted an “alarm bell” for the Regime.

London, 9 Apr - On Friday 7th April, the first international marathon organised by Dutch businessman Sebastiaan Straten took place in Iran.

Before the race took place, Straten had said that he was disappointed that female runners were required, according to an Iranian government official, to compete in a separate race at a stadium away from the male runners. Majid Keyhani who is in charge of the country’s track and field federation announced during this rule earlier in the week.

Straten said: “As an organiser, I did not accept that. Female runners had 10K route outside the stadium with same start and finish as male race.”
