Hoax - Apology and retraction.
You will have noticed that the previous post has been deleted.
The content of the post was sent to me in good faith and I published it here
with out fully checking it. The email sent to me, on which my post was based, was a hoax. I apologise unreservedly for posting some of it's content and for any upset this caused.
The good news is that the 8 yr old Iranian kid depicted having his arm crushed by the wheel of a car, as punishment for stealing bread, was part of a street theatre group. He hadn't stolen any bread but was "earning his bread". I have seen a picture of him later laughing and smiling. His arm was not damaged.
The images of the real horrors of Iranian punishments such as hanging children and stoning girls and women are vivid enough. There is no need to fabricate evidence against the cruel regime. How ever, I feel particularly bad about my mistake on this occasion because, I am always concious of the need to try to create balance and accuracy in what I post here.
Finally, I am relieved this was a hoax, after all. Be assured I will do every thing I can to ensure this does not happen again.
