There will be no general admission for Iranian women at two upcoming male international volleyball matches but a small number will be allowed to watch, a security official said Tuesday.The World League fixtures on Friday and Sunday are especially notable because they will see Iran take on the United States.In November, volleyball's world governing body, the FIVB, banned Iran from hosting international tournaments, citing the case of Ghoncheh Ghavami, a British-Iranian law graduate.The FIVB ban on Iran does not apply to World League fixtures set earlier.
