The trigger is the death of 22-year-old Iranian Mahsa Amini. She had been arrested by the vice squad for violating the strict Islamic dress code. What exactly happened to Amini after her arrest is unclear. It is known that she initially fell into a coma and died in a hospital on September 16. Critics accuse the morality police of using violence. The police deny the allegations.
