1. Women protesting against wearing the hijab in Iran will be charged with inciting PROSTITUTION and jailed for up to ten years as regime cracks down on growing dissent
Iranian women protesting the compulsory headscarf by taking off their hijab in public could be facing up to a decade in jail for 'inciting prostitution', police has warned.
Authorities in Iran are desperately trying to stem the growing protests across the country against the dress code enforced on women since the Islamic revolution of 1979.
More than 35 women have been arrested in the capital Tehran alone in the past two months, with several reportedly subjected to torture while in custody.
At least two of the arrested protesters, Narges Hosseini and Shaparak Shajarizadeh, are being charged with “inciting corruption and prostitution”, Amnesty International reports.
Ms Shajarizadeh was arrested last Wednesday and has reportedly been subjected to beatings in prison.

The shooting occurred at the town’s police station, located about a 30-minute drive from Stockholm, overnight, according to investigators.

The bullet holes were discovered at around 8:45 am Monday but are thought to have been fired closer to 3 am. Police received a phone call at 2:52 am from someone who described hearing what sounded like gunshots, Olsson said.

6. Illegal immigrant jailed for life after raping pregnant woman at knife point
A “PREDATORY sex attacker” who raped a pregnant woman at knife point in her own bed has been jailed for life.
Afghan national Aryan Rashidi, who entered the UK on a lorry illegally, held a knife to his victim's throat during the shocking attack in the early hours of October 5, 2016.
Rashidi preyed on the pregnant woman in order to take a risk to “fulfill his sexual needs”, Leeds Crown Court heard.
The court was also told he had tried to commit a sex attack on another victim in June 2016 as she slept in bed with her husband with their baby in a cot in the same room.
The court heard both victims have been left deeply traumatised and have had to move as they no longer felt safe in their homes.

8. Christians flogged in Indonesia for playing game considered anti-Islamic
Two Christians were flogged in public for taking part in what is considered an anti-Islamic children's entertainment game in Indonesia.
The duo was beaten with a rattan stick outside a mosque in Aceh province as spectators, some of them jeering, took pictures of the flogging.
“This is to create a deterrent effect, in order for people not to repeat violations of Islamic sharia law,” said Banda Aceh's Mayor Aminullah Usman, according to the AFP news agency. “We purposely do it in front of the public... so it won't happen again.”
Aceh is the only province in Indonesia where strict Sharia laws are in force. Anyone found violating the laws is given severe punishment including whipping. Those who routinely face such punishment include transgender people, homosexuals and those who consume alcohol. [...]
The latest to be punished were Dahlan Silitonga, 61, and Tjia Nyuk Hwa, 45, who were playing a local children's game in which the players can exchange coins for cash or other items. They were accused of gambling.
