Neda Agha Soltan - "The Voice of Iran"

CNN reports:
"Amid the hundreds of images of Saturday's crackdown on protesters in Iran that were distributed to the world over the Internet, it was the graphic video showing the dying moments of a young woman shot in the heart that touched a nerve for many people around the world.

Like most of the information coming out of Tehran, it is impossible to verify her name, Neda, or the circumstances of her apparent death, which was captured close-up on a bystander's camera
."

Robin Wright at Time magazine has some background info on Neda and the circumstances of her death. Harry's Place has the video of her murder at the hands of Iranian regime. It is not for the faint of heart.
