The girl symbol of the anti-hijab protests is killed by Iranian forces

Hadis Najafi, 20 years old, one of the girls symbol of the protests that have erupted in the squares of the main cities of Iran for days, 10 days after the death of 22-year-old Masha Amini, was killed by the Iranian security forces last night in the city of Karaj, near Tehran.

The girl who was killed by 6 bullets from the Police shooting had become a symbol of the protests against the hijab.

In a video that went viral, she was seen tying her hair in a rubber band, without a hijab, openly demonstrating her opposition to the mandatory veil and discriminatory women's rights laws in the Shiite-majority Islamic Republic.

This common gesture for any western girl, in Iran just paid with life again.
