Iran’s Shargh newspaper says security forces arrested one of its reporters on October 2.
It said that Maryam Lotfi was taken into custody after visiting Fajr Air Force Hospital to report on the situation of a girl who had lost consciousness in the Tehran subway.
According to some reports, a high school girl was sent to the hospital after sustaining a head injury in the subway. The incident reportedly occurred when an officer pushed her to try to force her to wear a mandatory headscarf.
No information has been provided regarding the reasons for Lotfi's arrest or the agency responsible for it.
