TEHRAN: Iranian pop singer Mehdi Yarrahi was freed on bail on Tuesday following his detention for releasing a song against compulsory headscarves, a newspaper in the Islamic republic reported.
The 41-year-old had been arrested in August on the orders of prosecutors in Tehran for distributing an “illegal song” that challenged “the morals and customs of Islamic society.”
