Germany's Scholz: Mahsa Amini's death is 'terrible'

BERLIN, Sept 23 (Reuters) - German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said on Friday it was terrible that Mahsa Amini, 22, died in police custody in Tehran last week after being arrested for wearing "unsuitable attire".

"I am also saddened by the victims of the Iran protests by courageous women," Scholz tweeted. "No matter where in the world: women must be able to live in self-determination - without having to fear for their lives." (Writing by Paul Carrel, editing by Kirsti Knolle)
