Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) announced that it has "demolished" a network of all-female "western-style" parties in Hamadan, western Iran.
The IRGC forces in Hamadan, which is the ancient city of Ecbatana, did not divulge the exact location of the parties, the numbers of guests arrested, or what has happened to those still held in prison. They only said that 20 of the detainees were released after being disciplined, lectured, and guided to the "right path”. It is not known whether disciplined in this case refers to a warning or some sort of corporal punishment.
