Hardliners Torch Benetton Store In Iran

This week the Iranians attacked the Jordanian embassy, firebombed Saudi offices, threatened the Egyptian government with a 48 hour deadline, and stormed the British Embassy.
They also torched the Benetton store.

The selection is quite limited in Iran.

The hardliners torched the Benetton store in Tehran last night, too.
AKI Kronos reported:

A branch of the Italian clothing retailer Benetton was set on fire in Iran amid angry protests against the Israeli raids in the Gaza Strip, media reports said on Wednesday.

According to the conservative Iranian daily, Jomhuri Eslami, the shop in Dowlat Street, in the north of the capital Tehran, had been attacked by protesters on Tuesday.

Benetton is said to be “linked with the Zionist network,” a government newspaper said.

Several Benetton stores have opened in the past two years in Iran, where global brands have largely been absent since the 1979 Islamic revolution.

Debbie Schlussel has more on the torching.
