Iran arrests models for posting photos of themselves online without headscarves

8 models in Iran have been arrested and forced to grovel in public by the country's morality Police, for posting glamorous pictures of themselves online without covering their heads with headscarves. Stating that such 'un-Islamic acts' as women exposing their hair in public was unacceptable.

Popular Arab model, Elham Arab, known for her wedding-dress portraits, was interrogated on camera at the Iranian Revolutionary Court with her blonde hair hidden under a black chador.

She was charged with 'promoting western promiscuity' and forced to give public 'self-criticism.' 'All people love beauty and fame,' Arab said. 'They would like to be seen, but it is important to know what price they will pay to be seen.'
The arrests were made in a sting operation code-named Spider-2 which specifically targeted Instagram users.

The sting identified 170 people using Instagram pages - 59 photographers and makeup artists, 58 models, 51 fashion salon managers and designers, and two active institutions.
