U.S. Says Iranian Forces May Have Killed more than 1,000 Protesters – Carol Morello and Missy Ryan
Brian Hook, the U.S. special representative for Iran, said Thursday, “As the truth is trickling out of Iran, it appears the regime could have murdered over 1,000 Iranian citizens since the protests began,” including at least a dozen children, and that many thousands more have been wounded. Hook gave a harrowing description of the government crackdown, including the torture and rape of captured protesters.
“Now is the time for all nations to stand with the Iranian people, diplomatically isolate the regime and sanction those officials who are responsible for murdering innocent Iranians,” he said. (Washington Post)
