    The Iranian government has launched a crackdown against Western-style clothing.

    More than 70,000 so-called "moral police" officers have been deployed in the capital Tehran, to enforce a government approved dress code.

    Women will be arrested if their headscarves do not fully cover their hair or their clothes show their figures too clearly.

    Men will be stopped for wearing necklaces or having hairstyles seen as inappropriate.
