    Police and militia forces attacked UT student dorm in Iran


    This is the aftermath of anti-riot police and militia attack to University of Tehran student dorm. One of the buildings was put on fire last night (June 14th). Students were beaten and shot. It is confirmed that at least 1 student was dead. Up to 150 students were arrested, many more injured. Many of the professors of University of Tehran resigned because of this disaster. This was worse than the famous attack on the same dormitory in July 99. The attack followed student protests against the June 13th coup d'etat in which the government stole the votes of people and announced fake results for the election. The dorm was surrounded by the militia for hours after this.

    These are accounts from eye-witnesses. My friends in the dorm sent me these videos and pictures to distribute. Because of censorship and explosion of news about the rally that happened the day after, the news of this attack did not receive appropriate attention.
