Rape, Torture, and Lies
An ongoing Canadian saga has a sad new twist today: photojournalist Ziba Zahra Kazemi
was likely brutally tortured and raped before her death in Iran in 2003. Arrested after a demonstration, the official Iranian line has been that her death was an accident due to injuries from a fall. The ER doctor who treated her has now spoken out, after being granted refugee status in Canada. Wikipedia
has an excellent outline of the entire story.
