Disappeared statues in Tehran, 2010
Disappeared statues in Tehran refers to a series of robberies committed during the months of April and May 2010 in Tehran, Iran, when twelve bronze statues of national heroes disappeared from public places for unknown reasons. Tehran officials treated the incidents as theft, while others[who?] have suggested that it may have been a deliberate removal by the government or religious groups. In June 2010, Tehran municipality officials asked the sculptors to remanufacture the sculptures.
