Surprising Things About Iran

The Independent is listing "Ten very surprising things about Iran" and here are a few items I was surprised by:

- Iran has one of the only condom factories in the Middle East, and actively encourages contraception as a means of family planning.

- More than 3,600 Iranians have been killed in the past 25 years fighting heroin smugglers. Iran itself has more than two million addicts.

- Transsexuals are permitted to have sex-change operations in Iran by the decree of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini himself.
