Ayatollah Dies But Fatwa to Murder 2 Journalists Remains
The death of this Iranian Ayatollah won’t make life any better for two Azeri journalists.
Iranian Grand Ayatollah Mohammad Fazel Lankarani died June 16 in London. The senior cleric issued a fatwa in November 2006 calling for the deaths of Samir Sadagatoglu and Rafiq Tagi, which is on Lankarani’s Web site in Q&A form.
Unfortunately, his death does not lift the fatwa.
