Iranian Students Throw Paper Missiles Toward Israel

In an unusual competition, Iranian students in the northern province of Mazandaran have reportedly thrown paper "missiles" (they look more like paper planes) toward Israel. (News story in Farsi with photos.)

According to a Mazandaran-based news website “Darynews,” the competition took place in the week leading up to the February 11 anniversary of the 1979 Revolution, with 650 students taking part.
