The Funeral of Sohrab Arabi

Sohrab Aarabi (also spelled Arabi) was a 19-year-old Iranian pro-democracy student whose death became the symbol of protests during the 2009 post-election unrest in Iran. Sohrab disappeared on June 15. The case received significant media attention. Although prosecutor Saeed Mortazavi promised that he would release him, after nearly a month of searching by friends and relatives, it turned out that Sohrab was killed with "a gunshot wound to the heart". Some sources reported two bullet wounds – one in the head and one under the heart. The Iranian Judiciary handed the body to the family of the victim.
