More Iran Updates

It’s difficult to know what to say at this point about the Iran elections, but I think it’s worth pointing to some of the videos and blogs that are coming out of Tehran as protesters have been holding a mourning ceremony to mark the death of Neda Agha-Soltan, who was shot to death during post-election protests.

But Negar Mottahedeh has been tracking links to videos and blogs on Twitter, and this video posted to YouTube, in particular, depicts police shooting into the crowd, as well as a number of brave protesters standing up to the police. The Revolutionary Road blog is currently liveblogging the protest and providing a vital report on what is happening in Tehran.  The New York Times blog also has some incredible compilations of some of the tweets, blog posts, and videos that are coming out of Iran.
