Yesterday evening, the Iranian security forces shot and killed a protester who was celebrating the elimination of the Iranian national team from the World Cup in Qatar, reported "Bi-bi-si".

Last night, Iran lost to the USA with 0-1 in the last match of the group stage of the tournament, and a draw was enough for the national team to advance to the round of XNUMX.

Activists said that Mehran Samak was shot in the head while driving his car horn yesterday evening in the northern Iranian city of Bandar Azali, on the Caspian Sea.

Videos from elsewhere across Iran posted on social media showed crowds of people celebrating the elimination of the national team from the World Cup. People, apparently anti-government protesters, rejoice and play.

Many Iranians did not support the Iranian national team at the World Cup, claiming that it represented the Islamic Republic, notes the BBC.
