Iran Denies Visas for U.S. Women's Badminton Team
Two Iranian women pass anti-Israel/U.S. banner with pictures of Israel's Prime Minister Ehud Olmert (L), U.S. former President George W. Bush (C) and Israel's Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni outside of Shiroudi sports complex in Tehran, Iran on February 5, 2009. The failure of Iran to issue visas in time for a U.S. badminton team to play in a tournament in Tehran was termed "unfortunate" by the U.S. State Department. The 12-member delegation was en route to Tehran at the invitation of the Iranian Badminton Federation to participate in an international competition Wednesday through Sunday.
