North Korean (Sore Losers?)

[Media Source*]

It looks like they were a little upset that their great "regime" had lost to another great "regime," Iran.

The world caught a rare glimpse of mob violence in North Korea Wednesday when soccer fans in the highly controlled state hurled bottles, rocks and chairs as the home team lost a World Cup qualifier to Iran...

North Korean soldiers and police stepped in to try to restore order after defender Nam Song-chol was sent off for shoving Syrian referee Mohamed Kousa during the match seen on international satellite television.

Apparently the raging fans tried to prevent the winners (2-0) from entering their boarding buses. After two hours (wow, that must have been a crowd) the Iranians were finally able to get on their bus and depart.

Unfortunately for the rowdy crowd, the North Korean regime was unhappy with the behavior and promised to hunt down those responsible for embarrassing the regime on international television (I wonder if they'll get shot like these guys.

Picture of the mob.

Bottles and seats thrown by North Korean supporters lie on the field after the 2006 World Cup qualifying Asian Group B match North Korea against Iran at Kim Il-sung stadium in Pyongyang March 30, 2005.

I guess it's another reason to go visit North Korea.
