Protesters in Iran celebrated the Islamic Republic’s defeat against the U.S. team at the soccer World Cup.  “I am happy, this is the government losing to the people,” one witness to celebrations in a city in the Kurdish region said.  There is fear surrounding the return of the Iranian players to their country due to a show of support to the protesters by not singing the national anthem at one of the matches in the competition.
