Families of Iran soccer team in Qatar threatened with torture

“Dozens of officers from the IRGC had been drafted in to monitor the Iranian players who are not allowed to mingle outside the squad or meet with foreigners.”

Last week, the Iranian players did not sing their national anthem nor celebrate their goals. In the stands, many Iranian fans showed solidarity with the protest movement that has roiled the country for months, AP reported.

The threat was made ahead of Iran’s game against the U.S. team Tuesday afternoon.
