Tehran, Iran, May 03 – Iranian authorities street-paraded two young men in central Tehran on charges of “hooliganism”, the state-run news agency ISNA reported on Wednesday.

The news agency also published a photo of the pair as they were being paraded with their hair shaven off like a cross and long sticks passed through their sleeves.

The young men, identified as Masoud and Mehdi, were also accused of using a knife as a weapon in Tehran’s Nezam-Abad district.

Authorities frequently parade youths, forced to sit backwards on donkeys, in their local neighbourhood so as to embarrass and humiliate them.

Such punishments are often used for petty crimes such as alcohol consumption, disregarding nightly curfews, and disrespect towards security agents.
