Tens have been arrested, in the last days, in several Iranian cities with the approach of Iran-Mexico World Cup soccer game on Sunday June 11th (18:00 Germany's Local time).

Plainclothes agents and militiamen have arrested several of those qualified as potential "hooligans or trouble makers", in an effort to avoid any massive popular unrest to take place following the game.

Arrests have been made in cities, such as, Tehran, Mashad, Esfahan, Hamedan, Bookan, Rasht, Kermanshah, Shiraz, Marivan and Oroomiah (former Rezai-e).

More repressive measures are to take place with the start of the Sunday's game, and, Para-military forces are to be deployed massively in main cities and jamming of abroad based satellite waves and short wave radio frequencies are to be increased.

I fear that these protests will be aimed at the athletes and not the leadership. The players are not guilty of anything and if they are the focus of these protests, this could cause the fence sitters in Iran to rally behind their Government.

Mixing Politics and sports is a bad thing
