Six Iranians arrested for appearing in a video singing along to an American pop song were released on Wednesday, one day after being detained for what police called their "obscene" behaviour, one of them said in an online posting.
Police said on Tuesday they had arrested six Iranians suspected of posting a version of US singer Pharrell Williams`s hit song "Happy" on the Internet.
The clip shows three men and three unveiled women singing and dancing to the tune in the streets and on Tehran rooftops.
Iranians chanted "Death to America" and burned the US flag after weekly prayers in Tehran on Friday despite their new president`s outreach to the West and promises of moderation and easing of tensions with the outside world.
The two Iranian nationals, arrested in a drug case in the district, were allegedly running a cottage industry that was manufacturing synthetic illegal drug methamphetamine at a village near here, police said on Sunday.
A Delhi court on Wednesday issued an
"open warrant" against three Iranian nationals in connection
with the February 13 Israeli diplomat car bombing in which
journalist Syed Mohammed Ahmad Kazmi is already under arrest.
