Iran beats UAE

October 31, 2001
The Iranian

This note and video clip was received from a reader in Iran:

This is what it looks like outside, right at Shahrak Gharb's main square (Meydan-e Aan'at) in Tehran after Iran 3-0 defeat of UAE (See video clips here (1) (2) (3) about 5 megabytes each). There were basijis in the middle of the square, lighting the firework to please the crowd.

There were also members of "goruh-e feshaar" pressure group who went through the crowd once in a while. You could easily tell where they were, because the kids would throw homemade mini-grenades at them (you can see the cloud of smoke in the attached video clip).
