Iranian group protest with fire

At least 5 protestors set themselves on fire and officials of the group have stated their members will continue to do so.

This is the same outfit that although is listed as a terrorist organisation here in the United States was initially allowed to keep and bear arms in post-attack Iraq. Since then it's been reported they've been disarmed. According to this article they are allowed to operate on US soil. Interesting.

What may prove at least if not more interesting;

The police initially said they had seized $1.3 million in $100 bills, but reported Wednesday they had found several suitcases containing $6 million to $8 million in $100 bills. They also seized about 200 satellite dishes and about 100 computers in the raid of 13 sites.


As part of the crackdown, France also announced Wednesday that the police have set up a special unit to research the source of the money that was discovered during the police raid of one of the group's offices in Auvers-sur-Oise.
