A young woman, 9th term medical student, got suffocated by gas while taking shower in the dormitory of the Medical Sciences University of Shahr-e Kord, south central Iran.
Zohreh Ghasemi, from Isfahan, died on the way to hospital.
This is not the first time that young women die as a result of substandard and unsafe conditions of the dorms. Girl students have time and again protested their living conditions in the dormitories. (The state-run ROKNA news agency – October 7, 2017)
