Skip to comments.Report: Iran Arrests Man for Photographing Piles of Coronavirus Victim Bodies
Posted on 03/07/2020 9:56:54 AM PST by Morgana
Reports out of Iran indicate that police apprehended an unnamed man this week after a video surfaced showing piles of corpses, presumably of Chinese coronavirus victims, at a mortuary in Qom, the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak in the country.
Following the publication of the video on social media, multiple reports have corroborated evidence that Iran is experiencing an extremely high coronavirus death rate, potentially much higher than the official government numbers. CNN published a report Thursday similarly relaying the dire images of piles of bodies too large for government health workers to know what to do with and confirming that Iranian state media admitted the video was real.
The Saudi news outlet Al-Arabiya reported the arrest of the unnamed man on Wednesday, citing Iran International TV. It did not offer any details regarding if the man was indeed arrested in Qom or where Iranian police took him, as Iran admitted to freeing tens of thousands of prisoners this week in an attempt to prevent a pandemic within the prison system.
Similarly, the New York Post reported the arrest of one person in association with the filming of the video but offered no more information on the person. The Post noted that the online origin of the video appeared to be Iranian journalist Mohamad Ahwaze, who described the whistleblower behind the video as a member of the medical staff attempting to handle the crisis.
The gruesome video shows bodies in black bags lined on the floor at a health facility; the narrator, in Farsi, reportedly describes them as coronavirus victims and laments that the governments ineptitude has made it impossible to offer these individuals a proper burial.

Iran must have tried to buy the virus from China...I see no other way of them getting it.
Unless...our CIA was dealing with both Iran and China.
Looks like they got it! They dead too.
FWIW, I wouldn’t take any of this for gospel, either....
Ah yes, the regime bammy gave 150 billion to, and the leftists cheered. I believe the other poster is right - those fun bunch of guys don’t want the truth out there. Piles of bodies makes for bad press.
“Should I not have done that?”
Iran was using China to get around US sanctions. Lots of back and forth travelling. No other conspiracy necessary.
Seems like a silver lining to this virus.
It’s basically taken down the Chinese Communists and temporarily kept them from coming to the US, and now it goes after the worst trash of the Middle East, the Iranian Musocracy.
Helpful little critter.
Here in the usa it might be balancing social security.
They both got burned.
Following the publication of the video on social media, multiple reports have corroborated evidence that Iran is experiencing an extremely high coronavirus death rate, potentially much higher than the official government numbers.
If this is true, Iran is in worse shape economically and politically than we might have supposed.
Theory: Iran paid some one for it, and it gout..??? It would explain the high level officials getting it, and the timing is right after Trump took out their head asshole. And China freaking out so fast when there were on a few deaths.
Darwin is busy in Iran and probably London spreading the CoronaVirus among the believers.

Iranian official, who took part in 1979 Iran hostage crisis dies of coronavirus.
Hossein Sheikholeslam, 68, the former Iranian ambassador to Syria, studied at the University of California at Berkeley before becoming a leader of the radical Iranian students who stormed the U.S. Embassy in Tehran and took 52 American diplomats captive during the 444-day Iran hostage crisis.
Why then it’s an evil invader to be swatted hard and defeated.
