Tehran, Iran, Dec. 04 – Iranian State Security Forces raided a home in the north-eastern city of Mashad, host to a co-ed party, dozens of youths, a state-run daily reported on Sunday.

At least 18 young men and 22 young women were arrested in the raid, according to the daily Iran.

The 40 detained individuals have been handed over to the judiciary to face prosecution for attending the mixed-sex party.

Co-ed parties are banned in Islamic Iran. Thousands of teenage boys and girls were arrested last year for taking part in similar parties. Some were flogged in public.
