There are fewer protesters on the streets of Iran today. Security forces are cracking down on the anti-government demonstrations that followed the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini. The young Kurdish woman died earlier this month while in the custody of Tehran's Guidance Patrol, more commonly known as the morality police. We wanted to learn more about the morality police and their place in Iranian society. Professor Roxane Farmanfarmaian teaches international politics of the Middle East and North Africa at the University of Cambridge. We asked her about the modern history of the Guidance Patrol.

US Sanctions Iran's Morality Police Amid Spiraling Protests After nearly a week of demonstrations in multiple Iranian cities which Western media has dubbed the "anti-hijab" protests, the US on Thursday announced new sanctions against the Islamic Republic, this time targeting the country's 'morality police' following the alleged killing last week of 22-year old Mahsa Amini. "Mahsa Amini was a courageous woman whose death in Morality Police custody was yet another act of brutality by the Iranian regime’s security forces against its own people," Secretary of the Treasury Janet Yellen said in unveiling the new move.
