I want to rewrite some old urls on my site to new ones inorder to prevent
404 errors. For English urls everything is OK and adding a rewrite rule like
the following to the server block works fine.

rewrite ^/omid/$ /omidreza;

But when it comes to urls containing non-English characters the rule doesn`t
work. Has anyone experienced the same issue?
