A Nine Year Old Girl Is Shot By Basij

ABC News is reporting that even a 9 year old girl was targeted by government militia:

“The most disturbing are reports of a nine-year-old girl being shot @ Baharestan and the basij [militia] won’t let people near her to help.”


The website of Iran’s main opposition candidate, Mir-Hossein Mousavi, gives some weight to the other accounts.

“Many people have been beaten and injured at the protests across Tehran today,” the website says.

“At Baharestan the police were waiting inside local mosques for the protesters to arrive. At this point many would consider the actions of the basij and police as acts of terror.

“This is amazing that even in the year 2009 such primitive policing still exists.”

More coverage of this at MSNBC:

On Wednesday, demonstrators gathered at Baharestan Square, near the Iranian Parliament, but the gathering was met with gunshots, according to Saeed Valadbaygee, writing June 24 from inside Iran on his Revolutionary Road blog:

“In Baharestan Sq. A girl is shot and the police is not allowing to let them help”

“The girl who was shot was taken to a private clinic, not known yet of her well being … alive or not?
