NGO, “student killed by security agents in Iran”


By John

The Kurdish Hengaw Organization for Human Rights announced that a 20-year-old student Anahita Amiripour was shot dead by plainclothes officers in the city of Borujerd, western Iran. Iran International reports that the young woman was in the car with another student, who was seriously injured, when plainclothes officers tried to stop the car. The boy driving, not knowing who the men in civilian clothes were, tried to flee, at which point the officers opened fire. Her relatives, activists say, were threatened so as not to publicize the murder.
