Mia Stevens, Staff Reporter, The Pawprint

An event introducing a newly appointed Iranian governor was interrupted by a member of the audience after he walked on stage and slapped the governor in the face. 

The incident took place on Saturday at the Imam Khomeini Mosque in the city of Tabriz, while Zeinolabedin Khorram, the new governor of Azerbaijan province, was on stage delivering his speech.

 The motive for the attack still remains unclear. According to Khorram, the offender had told the police his reasoning behind the attack was he was upset that a man had vaccinated his wife at a Covid-19 clinic rather than a woman.
