Iran:Amid protests, Social media videos show flames at home of late leader Khomeini

DUBAI, Nov 18 (Reuters) – Video clips showing a fire at the ancestral home in Iran of the Islamic Republic’s late founder, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, have appeared on social media, with activists saying it was torched by protesters.

Reuters verified the location of two video clips using the distinctive arches and buildings that match file images.

Activists claim that protesters set fire to the late founder of the Islamic Republic, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini’s ancestral home in Iran, in videos that have surfaced on social media. Reuters verified the location of two video clips using the distinctive arches and buildings that match file images.

The social media videos show dozens of people cheering as a flash of fire is sparked in a building.

Reuters could not independently verify the dates when the videos were filmed. Activist network 1500Tasvir said the incident occurred on Thursday evening in Khomeini’s birth town of Khomein, south of the capital Tehran.

The house had been converted into a museum.

“The report is a lie,” Tasnim said. “The doors of the house of the late founder of the great revolution are open to the public.”Although a small group of people had gathered outside Khomeini’s house, the semi-official Tasnim news agency denied that the house had been set on fire. Several people can be seen cheering in the social media videos as a building catches fire in a flash.
