The Italian girl who was taken hostage

The case of Alessia Piperno comes at a time when, in Iran, particularly in Tehran, protests in opposition to the duty of the Islamic veil are raging following the demise of Mahsa Amini, 22, by the hands of the police. The repression by the Iranian police forces is violent: to this point dozens have been victims of the clashes and hundreds have been arrested. A scenario which explodes the stress within the nation and dangers complicating the settlement of the case of Alessia Piperno and her return to freedom.
