Iran President Cancels CNN Interview Over Headscarf Demand
Christian Amanpour sat before an empty chair after Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi canceled the interview with the CNN anchor. He backed out at the last minute after Amanpour declined to wear a headscarf during their interview. The walkout here comes as Iranian citizens protest the mysterious death of a young woman who was in the custody of Iran's 'morality police.' Now, Iranian women are throwing off their headscarves and cutting their hair.
