We now know the true identity of Neda, the woman who I posted the video of a few days ago, here. TIME Magazine has gathered a few pictures of her, and the protests around her death, in this photo essay. She was a beautiful Iranian woman.
This is the account from TIME:
By some accounts of her life, Neda was not deeply involved in politics. At the time of her death, she was with her singing instructor. The two of them had ventured out to witness the protests, but after being caught in a clash with club-wielding forces, they chose to head home. When they stepped out of a car, the fatal shot was fired.I truly hope her death will not be in vain.
