According to her uncle, the semi-official Etemad Online website in Iran announced this week that a 22-year-old Iranian woman Mahsa Amini had passed away after being detained by the country’s morality police.

According to the Iranian state news outlet ISNA, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi has commissioned an investigation into the circumstances surrounding her passing.

Mahsa Amini and her family were stopped by a morality police patrol on Tuesday night as they attempted to visit relatives in Tehran after travelling from the Kurdistan region of Iran. The morality police is a specialised division that upholds stringent dress regulations for women, including the wearing of the headscarf.

Human rights advocates who have talked to the family said that the police forced Amini into a police vehicle after snatching her up, according to IranWire.
According to IranWire, when her brother Kiarash tried to interfere, he was informed that his sister was being brought to the police station for an hour of “re-education.”
According to Kiarash, he never again saw his sister awake.
An ambulance arrived and discretely brought his sister to the hospital as he waited outside the police station for her to be freed.

According to Kiarash, who spoke with IranWire, she had a heart attack or a stroke while at the police station and was in a coma.
Following her detention on Tuesday, Amini reportedly experienced a “heart attack,” according to Tehran police on Thursday.

“The woman was sent to a Greater Tehran police precinct for guidance and education when suddenly, in the presence of other people, she had a heart attack,” the police said.
Amini’s family have questioned the version of events given by police, saying she was a normal, healthy 22-year-old with no pre-existing heart conditions.
“There were only two hours between her arrest and being taken to hospital,” Kiarash told IranWire.
Amini was allegedly seen entering a “education” facility where she would have received “instruction” on appropriate Islamic garb in a footage that was made public by Iranian state TV.
The video was altered to show CCTV footage showing a woman sitting down, getting up to talk to a “expert,” touching her clothing, and then falling to the ground.
The woman is being carried by five men while apparently unconscious in the video below. Another frame then shows an ambulance.
At 19 seconds into the video, there is an edit that shows the woman rising up and speaking. It appears to be daytime outdoors before the clip. The cut makes it appear dark.
What happened to Amini after her arrest and before she showed up to the re-education facility is still a mystery. The identity of the woman in the video as Amini cannot be confirmed by CNN.
On Saturday, Iranian authorities claimed to have performed an autopsy on Amini’s body. Mehdi Forozesh, the director of Iran’s Forensic Medical Organization, stated on state television that the results would be made public after additional review by medical professionals.
The White House is extremely concerned by Amini’s passing, according to Jake Sullivan, National Security Advisor to US President Joe Biden, in a tweet sent out on Friday.

“Ms. Amini looks unwell and falls to the floor,” the state media reporter says.
Amini, “was reportedly beaten in custody by Iran’s morality police. Her death is unforgivable. We will continue to hold Iranian officials accountable for such human right abuses,” Sullivan tweeted.
