AFP: When entering a music hall in the Iranian capital to hear a performance by folk diva Pari Zanganeh, one could be forgiven for thinking the venue was a top secret military installation.
At the door, uniformed security guards demand entrants to surrender cameras, mobile telephones and tape recorders. The aim is for nothing to leak out from the Jasmine festival, a series of singing performances by women that began in 1999.

Radio Farda: The Islamic government has heightened its campaign against violations of the Islamic dress code, as more women appear in Tehran and other major cities dressed in tighter overcoats, displaying the curves of their bodies in violation of the Islamic dress code, according to a dispatch from Tehran by the Deutsche Presse-Agentur.

AFP: Iran's conservative parliament is preparing designs for national Islamic costumes to combat the corrupting influence  of Western fashion, a prominent MP said Wednesday.
"We have to design new trends within the framework of an Islamic dress code. Both men and women need a national costume," Emad Afroogh, head of the parliamentary cultural commission, told student news agency ISNA.

Iran Focus: A new wave of crackdown against young people, particularly girls, has been launched by the Iranian security forces in conjunction with other security services under the pretext of campaign against “symbols of public corruption” and “improper veiling.”
