Hoda Saber's Death

Hoda Rezazadeh Saber (19 March 1959 – 10 June 2011) was an Iranian journalist, translator and political activist. He served several prison terms since 2000. On 2 June 2011, Saber and another nationalist-religious figure, Amir Khosrow Dalirsani, stopped eating food and later stopped drinking water to protest to "the conditions that led to the death of Haleh Sahabi", and the government's  mistreatment against the protesters. Saber was imprisoned in Ward 350 of Evin Prison at the time. On June 10 Saber died of a heart attack caused by the hunger strike and authorities’ ignorance in transferring him to Modares Hospital.
