Tehran: A couple who danced on the street in Iran was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
The video of this Iranian couple dancing on the street has gone viral on social media.
According to a foreign news agency, an Iranian court has sentenced the couple for the crime of promoting nudity, corruption and propaganda.
A dance video shared by 21-year-old Astiaz Haqqi and her fiance Amir Mohammad Ahmadi on their Instagram account went viral, showing the two dancing on the Azadi Tower in Tehran.
The couple has also been banned from using social media for 2 years and asked to leave the country.
According to reports, people protesting after the death of Mahsa Amini, a woman in police custody in Iran, are being severely punished, but the couple did not link their dance to the ongoing protests in Iran.
