Iran arrests Instagram celebrity Sahar Tabar for blasphemy

TEHRAN: An Iranian woman known for posting images of herself online trying to look like a lead character from Tim Burton’s “The Corpse Bride” has been arrested, the semi-official Tasnim news agency reported.

Tasnim said the woman, whom it identified only by her first name, Fatemah, was arrested Saturday.

It said authorities are looking to charge her with promoting violence, blasphemy and encouraging youth to corruption and insulting the Islamic dress code for women. News of her detention spread rapidly among internet users Monday in Iran, where she has a wide following on Instagram. (AP)
