Six young Iranians arrested for dancing on rooftops to US singer Pharrell Williams' hit "Happy" in a video that went viral on the Internet have been released on bail, reports said Wednesday.Recorded on a smart phone, the video shows three girls dancing in a room, on rooftops and in secluded alleys alongside three young men to Williams' "Happy" tune.The Iranian authorities are yet to confirm the dancers' release on bail.Rouhani, a self-declared moderate, has long claimed to be for more social freedoms in Iran.Conservatives are wary of young Iranians abandoning the values of the Islamic republic in favour of a Western lifestyle -- a phenomenon authorities and leaders say is part a "soft-war" against Iran.
