Tehran, Iran, Dec. 07 – At least 15 homeless people die in the streets of Tehran every night, the Fars news agency, close to the Office of the Supreme Leader reported on Tuesday.

The report quoted Moussa Reza Servati, a member of the Majlis (Parliament) Social Affairs Committee as saying that the government had failed to address the issue of homeless people in the Iranian capital.

Despite Iran’s huge oil revenues, poverty and homelessness are ubiquitous features of the Iranian metropolis, with thousands of homeless persons spending the night in the bitter cold without any shelter. Iran’s state-run media call the homeless “kartonkhabha”, literally meaning those who sleep on cardboards.
