Doctor tells how Neda Soltan was shot dead

Doctor tells how Neda Soltan was shot dead by Ahmadinejad’s basij – Times Online .

This is a must read for anyone who has seen the video of Neda Soltan, the Iranian woman shot to death by an Iranian militia. The story’s focus: An Iranian doctor who’s studying in England returns to Tehran for the vote, then witnesses Soltan’s death and tries to save her. He can’t. The video of Soltan’s passing that went around the world features the doctor, Arash Hejazi, trying to help her. Once Hejazi realizes he’s in danger himself — that Iranian authorities might arrest him or worse — he flies back to Britain. The militiaman who shot Soltan said he was trying to shoot her in the leg.
