Iranian Soldier Tears Pants While Carrying Coffin


Iranian opposition website Iran International on Thursday highlighted a few mishaps at the state funerals for President Ebrahim Raisi, Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, and others who perished in a helicopter crash on Sunday.

In one instance, an Iranian military honor guard struggled to maintain their formation while carrying the coffin of Imam Mohammad-Ali Ale-Hashem in the late man’s home city of Tabriz.

Even more embarrassing was a soldier whose pants apparently ripped while he was struggling with Amir-Abdollahian’s coffin:

According to Iran International, alongside the predictable jabs on social media, there was genuine anger in Iran over the military’s unprofessional appearance during these funeral services. The dancing pallbearers of Ghana make it all look so easy.
