Oct 28 (Reuters) – Armita Geravand, a 16-year-old Iranian girl, has died following an alleged encounter with officers over violating the country’s hijab law, the official IRNA news agency reported on Saturday.
“Unfortunately, she went into a coma for some time after suffering from brain damage. She died a few minutes ago,” IRNA reported.
Geravand had been pronounced brain dead last week after she fell into a coma on Oct 1.
