In case you missed this, the BBC interviewed Dr. Arash Hejazi, who tried to save Neda Soltan's* life on the streets of Iran. By speaking publicly, and very eloquently, he has effectively exiled himself from his homeland.
IMO, This Says It All
Among other things, Dr. Hejazi says that even though he has seen many people die in his capacity as a doctor, Neda's death affected him differently. He is speaking out now because he doesn't want her death to be in vain. Which is why I'm posting it here.
In other news, various media sources report that Neda's family has vanished from their apartment in Tehran. The Guardian reports that government authorities forced them out.
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.
Neighbours said that her family no longer lives in the four-floor apartment building on Meshkini Street, in eastern Tehran, having been forced to move since she was killed. The police did not hand the body back to her family, her funeral was cancelled, she was buried without letting her family know and the government banned mourning ceremonies at mosques, the neighbours said.
(*I have seen Neda's name spelled variously as "Soltani," and "Soltan," and "Agha-Soltan.")
