After an explosion in a street that killed 19 people in a small
villiage in the outskirts of Tehran (Emamzadeh Hassan), The
Shah and Empress Farah were
to visit the ruins. What was first suspected as a Soviet
terrorist plot was then said to be a mere accident sparked by
large fireworks stocked in
The Empress who could not hide her tears was greeted by the tearful
local villagers surprised to see her on location.
The street was baptised "Ashk-hayeh Farah" aka "The
Tears of Farah".
