Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe cuts hair in support of Iran protests

Nazanin Zaghari Rahcliffe, a British-Iranian national, was held in Iran for six-years and has since filmed herself cutting her hair to support anti-government protests.

She snipped at her hair and named Mahsa Alimini, whose death while in the custody Iran’s morality officers sparked a wave protests that reached more than 80 cities. Protests quickly grew into the biggest challenge Iran’s Shia Muslim clergy establishment has faced for years.

Amini was arrested on suspicion of violating the strict law that requires women to cover their hair in a hijab or headscarf.

Protesting women were filmed cutting their hair and burning their hijabs, according to activists.
