Deadly Drone Sandstorm Sweeps up Iran Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Mon, Jun 2, 2014, 09:03 PM

A deadly drone sandstorm had swept into Tehran, the capital city of Iran and killed five innocent civilians, including women and children.

The BBC News reports that, "A powerful sandstorm has hit Iran's capital, Tehran, killing at least four people and injuring about 30. At its peak, the storm brought winds of up to 110km/hour (70mph), knocking over trees and damaging windows."

A Tehran shopkeeper is quoted as saying that, "It was a horrifying storm and suddenly everywhere went dark. I closed my store's shutters to prevent damage. [A] big tree broke and knocked in the windows, shattering them."

According to the BBC News, "Eyewitnesses told the BBC the sky turned orange from thick dust brought on by the storm. Such strong storms are unusual in Tehran, correspondents say. The storm caused power cuts and traffic accidents from poor visibility as dust and sand engulfed parts of the capital."

Eco-activists are blaming Global Warming, not President Barry Obama, for drone sandstorms, while former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton pulled out her 'Victim Card' to accuse GOP lawmakers of "politicizing" the issue.
