Family of jailed Iranian Nobel laureate says prize is a win for ‘resistance’

Paris (AFP) – The family of Nobel Peace Prize winner and jailed activist Narges Mohammadi honours the fight against the oppression of women in Iran, many of whom are removing their hijabs despite a harsh crackdown. Mohammadi’s award comes after a wave of protests swept Iran following the death in custody a year ago of a young Iranian Kurd, Mahsa Amini, arrested for violating Iran’s strict dress rules for women.
