Iran’s morality police, charged with enforcing the Islamic dress code, is being disbanded, the country’s attorney general has said.

Mohammad Jafar Montazeri’s comments, not yet confirmed by other government institutions, were made at an event this Sunday (4).

Iran has seen months of protests over the death of a young woman in authorities’ custody.

Mahsa Amini was detained by the morality police for allegedly breaking the rules on the need to cover the head.
