Please let the world know!
People changed the name of the street "Kargar/Amirabad" (where she was shot) to "Neda" her name.

I got this note below from Facebook, posted by "H.R". The video is so graphic. I'll post it soon!
"Basij shots to death a young woman in Tehran's Saturday June 20th protests
At 19:05 June 20th
Place: Karekar Ave., at the corner crossing Khosravi St. and Salehi st.
A young woman who was standing aside with her father watching the protests was shot by a basij member hiding on the rooftop of a civilian house. He had clear shot at the girl and could not miss her. However, he aimed straight her heart. I am a doctor, so I rushed to try to save her. But the impact of the gunshot was so fierce that the bullet had blasted inside the victim's chest, and she died in less than 2 minutes.
The protesters were going on about 1 kilometers away in the main street and some of the protesting crowd were running from tear gas used among them, towards Salehi St.
The film is shot by my friend who was standing beside me.
Please let the world know."
