Tehran, Oct. 1 – Plain-clothed agents of the State Security Forces (SSF) in Shahre Kord (central Iran) arrested over 100 motorcyclists on Sep. 28, eye-witnesses said. All the motorcycles were confiscated and taken to the local SSF headquarters’ parking lot.

The arrests are part of a new crackdown on youth and motorcyclists. The tough measures are in response to rising public discontent over government policies.

“I personally saw 10 young men being taken away,” a local resident who wished to remain anonymous said.

Those arrested were confined and interrogated for several hours.

Officials have not given any reason as to why the motorcyclists were arrested.
