NOTE: “The shocked Iranian was then advised by police to wear his coat over the outfit when using it in the future.” He wouldn’t want to try getting on a bus in Israel in that outfit, fat guys like that in the summer would be shot on sight.

THE SUN: A SHOCKED student was stopped and searched by armed cops after he was mistaken for a suicide bomber — while out jogging in a WEIGHT VEST.
Stunned Goudarz Karimi, 25, was simply on a mission to get fit when he was forced to remove the 30kg personal training vest so it could be checked for explosives.
Officers were called by a concerned member of the public who reported seeing a man wearing what he thought was a bomb suit.
The shocked Iranian was then advised by police to wear his coat over the outfit when using it in the future.
He said: “I’m 100 per cent sure that if I was blond with Caucasian skin type nobody would have noticed and said anything about it, but I am of dark skin complexion and from Iran and I’m sure that is related to it.”
Oxford University student Goudarz, who was training in the city at the time, added: “I felt a bit like my rights were violated. The police told me to take my vest off and to go home and I don’t see why I should.”
But the force denied the decision to stop him at 3.20pm on Monday would have been “made on ethnicity alone”.
