Is Germany too silent on Iran?
The death of a young woman in police custody in Iran has unleashed weeks of protest and violent reprisals in the Islamic Republic.
The woman, 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, was allegedly beaten to death after being arrested by Iran’s moral police over a failure to cover her hair properly.
In the West, activists have called on governments to do more to support the young women of Iran.
So, what has Germany’s relationship with Iran’s theocracy traditionally looked like? And how is Germany likely to react to the latest cycle of street demonstrations and brutal crackdowns?
