Haleh Sahabi


Death comes to a funeral

Iran has a new female symbol of resistance: Haleh Sahabi


On and on it goes

Haleh Sahabi, daughter of Iranian dissident Ezzatollah Sahabi, was attacked by government goons at her father’s funeral and died as a result. Sahabi, a democracy activist who was arrested following Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s rigged re-election, had been temporarily released from jail to attend the funeral.
