Iranian regional mayor is slapped in the face during inauguration – video

The new governor of a northwestern Iranian province was slapped in the face by an angry man during his inauguration on Saturday in an unusual breach of security in the Islamic Republic during a ceremony attended by the country’s interior minister.

The new governor, Brig Gen Abedin Khorram, had taken the podium in the provincial capital of Tabriz when the man strode out from offstage and immediately swung at the official.
