Iranian teenager Armita Geravand died after a month in a coma

Iranian teenager Armita Geravand died today, a month after falling into a coma after an altercation with the morality police on Tehran's metro.

Armita Geravand, 16, suffered "severe injuries" after an altercation with the so-called morality police at Shohada station in the Iranian capital Tehran on 1 October.

The young student fell into a coma and died today. She had earlier been declared brain dead after being injured in what human rights groups said was an altercation with officials of the morality police for not wearing a head scarf properly.

Her case has been likened to that of Jina Mahsa Amini, the 22-year-old Kurdish woman who died while in the custody of morality police.

The state femicide of Amini triggered an uprising across the country under the slogan "Jin, Jiyan, Azadî" (Woman, Life, Freedom).

The women-led uprisings that spread from Rojhilat to the whole of Iran have created an irreversible revolution in people's minds, resulting in the deaths of at least 500 people and injuries to thousands more. Despite the family’s complaint against those responsible for Amini’s death, no action has been taken so far.
