Iranian Regime Executes Two Democracy Protesters

Planet Iran and Azarmehr reported on this very sad news from Iran:

Iranian student Arash Rahmanipour, (video) one of the two victims executed on Thursday, was only 19 years old. He was arrested in March or April 2009 two months before the fraudulent elections in June which led to protests throughout Iran. This week the killer regime’s prosecutor, inconsistent as ever like bad liars always are, said Arash Rahmanipour was executed for his role in the Ashura protests. Presumably the 19 year old Arash was directing the Ashura protests from his cell while he was being interrogated.

His father told Aljazeera that he found out about his son’s execution after he was already dead:

His father says he will not accept condolences only congratulations as his son has now been martyred for a democratic Iran.
