An Iranian female competitive climber, Elnaz Rekabi, left South Korea on Tuesday after competing at an event in which she climbed without her nation’s mandatory headscarf covering, authorities said.

According to reports, she may have been forced to leave early by Iranian officials and could face arrest back home, which Tehran denied.
