Tehran, Iran, Jul. 04 – A hospital belonging to the Revolutionary Guards in the Iranian capital is refusing entry for women not wearing the head-to-toe covering known as chador, according to local residents.

Security guards outside the main entrance of Baqiyatollah Hospital were seen turning away women who were not wearing the chador.

Canadian Photojournalist Zahra Kazemi died in Baqiyatollah Hospital in July 2003, after being taken there from Evin Prison where she lost her consciousness under torture.

Shahram Azam, a physician who examined Kazemi on her arrival at the hospital, fled to Canada last year and has revealed gruesome details about the torture inflicted on the journalist and the way hospital authorities covered up the issue.
