Nice folks...

Iranians are such nice people.

It was unclear exactly what his offense had been as the country's strict morality laws cover many areas, but it was reported he had been convicted of abusing alcohol and having sex outside of marriage.

The public lashings have been endorsed by the judiciary as a way of deterring alcohol abuse at a time when it is on the increase among young men but some religious leaders are said to be questioning their validity, fearing they have an adverse impact on the country's image abroad.
No kidding? Nice justice system when even the police are wearing masks. On another note, apparently black bikini briefs are "in" in Iran...
