During a trip through the city of Bandar-Abbas last week, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was confronted first hand by citizens of his country who were upset about their economic standing, while he was traveling in an automobile.
Footage of the incident has just recently been uploaded onto YouTube. The video shows a woman dressed in all-black, jumping onto the car of the Iranian President. She proceeds to tell him about her poor economic situation while sitting on the car.
Just before she got onto the vehicle, a man is seen and heard screaming, “I’m hungry, I’m hungry” near the side of Ahmadinejad’s car.
Economic sanctions have been imposed on Iran by the United States and the European Union in an attempt to deter Iran from pursuing its nuclear program without negotiating an international agreement. Ahmadinejad just recently claimed that Iran can last “2-3 years” with the oil embargoes and sanctions imposed on the country.
