The father of Mahsa Amini, the young woman who died in custody while being held by Iran’s morality police for allegedly violating its strictly enforced dress code, says officials prevented him from seeing parts of her body before she was buried.

In an interview with BBC Persian yesterday, Amjad Amini says he was only able to see her face, but not the back of her head, as well as her legs.

He also insisted that his daughter did not have any preexisting medical conditions, as the interior minister has claimed.

Her death has sparked widespread protests across Iran.
