Seven Iranian actors were arrested at a party in Tehran, according to an Iranian media report.


Mizan Khabar, the Iranian judiciary website, announced on Wednesday that seven “famous actors” were arrested at a party in Tehran’s Saadat Abad neighbourhood.

The report adds that 80 bottles of alcohol were confiscated at the party. No further details were released about the identity of the detainees.

Last November, Tehran police also arrested three football players at a party.

The police often raid private parties in Iran and detain the participants, who may be fined for alcohol consumption or socializing with the opposite sex, both considered offences under Iranian law.
