“Neda Agha-Soltan, 26, was shot dead Saturday evening near the scene of clashes between pro-government militias and demonstrators who allege rampant vote fraud in the reelection of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The jittery cellphone footage of her bleeding on the street has turned “Neda” into an international symbol of the protest movement that erupted after the June 12 balloting. Images of her final moments have spread virally on social networks, been beamed across the world on cable and held aloft on placards on the streets of Tehran.”
This is Neda Agha-Soltan, the new, tragic face of the unrest in Iran. Her death was caught and uploaded for the world to see. Stop what you are doing and read her story here. These things just don’t happen “over there” ladies.
