Iran’s attorney general ordered action against Women’s Day event organisers

Iran’s top legal attorney general seeks to take action against organisers of a Women’s Day event in Tehran, after young girls were shown dancing on stage at the mixed gender festival held on March 7, according to the state-run ISNA news agency.

In a video footage of Tuesday’s event a group of girls performing a choreographed dance set to music played by a traditional orchestra and a choir composed mostly of women.

A few hours after this footage was published with the city mayor taking part, the country’s attorney general Mohammad Jafar Montazeri ordered actions against those who “broke the law,” according to the same media.
