A military officer who was reportedly incensed by his wife being forced to receive her Covid-19 shot from a male disrupted the inauguration of Iran’s newest provincial governor by walking on stage and slapping the dignitary.
Video footage of Saturday’s incident begins with the newly appointed governor of Iran’s East Azerbaijan province, Abedin Khorram, standing on the stage at a podium as he prepares to give his inauguration speech. The unidentified assailant walks from the side of the stage and whacks Khorram with a powerful slap to the side of his face head.
