Allies of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad got arrested for using magic

Several people said to be close to [Iran’s] president [Mahmoud Ahmadinejad] and his chief of staff, Esfandiar Rahim Mashaei, have been arrested in recent days and charged with being “magicians” and invoking djinns (spirits).
Ayandeh, an Iranian news website, described one of the arrested men, Abbas Ghaffari, as “a man with special skills in metaphysics and connections with the unknown worlds”.

Makes me proud to live in a country without anti-djinn laws.
