If you read my post about the Iranian boy, I have followed up and...

it's only street magic. Unfortunately, when I try to verify articles/pictures/stories online, the phrases I search do not always provide results. I finally found a phrase to work in the search engine at Snopes.com (after several variations) to help me understand the truth behind these pictures: The Iranian boy whose arm was allegedly being crushed for having stolen bread was really nothing more than "street magic." I apologize for posting such upsetting pictures. When I couldn't verify it, I thought it was the truth. Thank the Lord I was wrong.

  • Good to know! Though this does teach us that we cannot always believe what we first hear/read about and must do further research to find the truth.
