Turmoil in Tehran

Neda's Family Evicted

As if losing their daughter weren’t sad enough: The Guardian reports that “The Iranian authorities have ordered the family of Neda Agha Soltan out of their Tehran home after shocking images of her death were circulated around the world.” Neighbors say that the family was forced to move after Neda’s death, and that “the police did not hand the body back to her family, her funeral was cancelled, she was buried without letting her families know and the government banned mourning ceremonies at mosques.”
