Iran:Police set a boy's hair on fire

Here is a video film showing how Iranian police set a boy's/young man's hair on fire. It seems he had been arrested because of his long hair.


  • It would be interesting to know a bit more about this video.. The source? The date this was filmed?

    Sorry, but it is a fake video. Iranian police officers wear their ranks on their shoulders and not on their arms. The Uniforms are fake and the video is done amatuerishly…They did not even research the uniforms well enough… Well it’s not the first propoganda would not be the last against Iran.
