Video shows mugging in broad daylight on Tehran's streets

The scene, filmed by a surveillance camera, is brief but violent. It
takes place in a street in Tehran, as the taxis' license plates
indicate, and shows a man being mugged by four other men.

The
man is standing in the street, apparently waiting for someone or
something, when four men arrive on two motorbikes. Two of the men jump
off and grab his bag and also try to take his jacket. The man fights
back, but stops when he sees one of his attackers brandish a long knife.
Meanwhile, cars drive by as if nothing were wrong, except for a taxi
that slows down, but quickly drives off when the knife-wielding attacker
threatens him. This attacker then swings at his victim with his knife
before he and his friends drive off on the motorbikes.

It
is very difficult to obtain any statistics on crime in Iran. The
Iranian authorities say that it has dropped over the past decade. In
October, police chief Esmayeel Ahamdi Moqaddam claimed that the number
of murders in Iran was ten times lower than in Europe. Recently, another
video showing a violent attack created outrage in Iran after it was
broadcast on state television.
