A YouTube clip uploaded to the Internet earlier this week shows a jeep of the Basiji popular militia in Iran in what seems to be a deliberate attempt to run over a motorcyclist and a rider sitting behind him. The two are seen riding a motorcycle, tailed by the jeep. The jeep then veers to the left, squeezing the motorcycle's road space until it eventually crashes against the curb. Both riders manage to escape on foot, one barely making it as he runs off in a cloud of dust. Click the Play button to watch the clip.
