Her name was Neda Agha Soltan and she was 27 years old. Stories on the web indicate that she was standing along side her father at a protest rally in Tehran, Iran. A regime police thug hiding on a roof shot her in the heart and she died in about two minutes.
Why shoot a harmless young woman? Perhaps the goal was to create terror among the protestors, to demoralize them and make them give up. The evil Iranian regime had faked a democratic election without any intent of abiding by the vote; it was all for show. President Ahmadinejad, the regime's goon, ran third in the vote but was declared the winner anyway. Then the protests began, resulting in the despots responding with deadly force.
The cowardly vermin who pepetrated this atrocity are beyond disgust. Our hearts go out to the Iranian freedom fighters. May this evil regime soon be consigned to the dustbin of history.
