Doctor Tells of Neda's Final Moments
The BBC has posted a video interview with a doctor who tried to save the life of Neda Agha Soltan after she was shot and killed at a rally on Saturday. Amateur video of Soltan's apparent death has become a YouTube sensation and galvanized the opposition movement.
In the video, Dr. Arash Hejazi relays how bystanders grabbed an armed Basij militiaman who appeared to admit to killing Soltan.
Widely cited Twitterer IranBaan said that visitors to Soltan's grave today were chased off and in some cases detained. The Post has not independently verified this.
A group of people went to Neda's grave today but the forces didn't let them stay or even pray....Today on Neda's grave whoever had a green sign got arrested right away.
Reports surfaced yesterday that authorities forced Soltan's family to leave their apartment in east Tehran.
