Slain Iranian woman identified

Her name was Neda Agha Soltan, and she worked for a travel agency.



She was murdered while watching the demonstrations with her father on Saturday in Tehran, apparently by a member of the security forces who shot her in the heart from the rooftop of a building.


Neda's death has become a symbol in Iran and globally, and no matter the result of the recent turmoil, she will not be forgotten.


She may become Iran's Joan of Arc. I hope that the result of all of this somehow makes her death worthwhile.

UPDATE: The New York Times is reporting that a memorial for Neda was broken up by Basij and Iranian police who beat and arrested protesters. Security then attacked nearby homes of people who were filming the event, and arrested some of them as well.

"Islamic Republic" my ass.
