The viewers of the Islamic News Network television channel in Iran witnessed several minutes of hardcore pornography during one of its programs.
This incident happened in the province of Hamedan, which is known for its religious fanaticism. A news program was interrupted with a porn clip, which lasted for three minutes.
The distribution of pornography is punished with death penalty in Iran. One of TV viewers complained, “It was immoral, dirty sex clip, the most obscene thing that I ever saw.” Tehran daily Jomhurieh Islami wrote that the state channel had confirmed the fact of blatant obscenity on television. An investigation is under way.
