models accused of 'un-Islamic acts' are being imprisoned in Iran

WORLD


In Iran, Instagram models are paying a heavy price for the simple posting of a picture.

Twelve people have been sentenced to prison terms of up to six years for posting their photos to the social platform, France 24 reports. Their convictions are part of the Iranian government's "Spider II" program, which hunts down Iranians seen as doing "un-Islamic acts" online.

So far at least 170 people, from make up artists to models, have been arrested through the operation that launched in March, according to the Associated Press. State-run television has said the new crackdown especially targets Instagram users.
