Women beaten and rounded up at the occasion of soccer game

SMCCDI (Information Service):
Several women and their male supporters were beaten or rounded up, yesterday, at the occasion of the soccer game played between the Iranian and Bosnia-Herzegovinian national teams at the "Azadi" ('Freedom' Stadium) located near Tehran.

Brutal militiamen used clubs and chains in order to break the peaceful gathering of the women who were condemning the Gender Apartheid Policy and the ban of Iranian women from soccer games.

Several maverick young girls were seen keeping their placards in their hands while getting badly beaten and injured.
