"Iranian exiled opposition group from several countries block a street protesting against EU negotiations with Tehran over Iran's nuclear situation..."

The sly British AP continues with deception, spin and misinformation when it comes to opposition movement of Iranians against the hijackers of their country. The protest WAS AGAINST EU collusions, and support and protection of the mollahs' rule over Iranians, and continuation of their economic ties with the EU.

The british AP conveniently left that out, and spun the truth.

And, Khashayar, thanks for the pics.

Tehran, 19 May (AKI) - The spokesperson for Iran's judiciary has announced a new round of court proceedings in July over the violent death of Zahra Kazemi. Kazemi, a 54-year-old Iranian-born Canadian photojournalist, was arrested in June 2003 after taking photos of demonstrations outside a Tehran prison. She died at the Baghiollah military hospital in Tehran two weeks later on 11 July 2003 after falling into a coma, having received head injuries during more than three days of interrogation.

The name of the officer who gave photos and x-rays of the victim to the Canadian embassy has also been revealed. Hadi Sepehrlou, a lieutenant who was working at the Baghiollah military hospital, was arrested soon after he spoke to the Canadian diplomats. The photos and x-rays taken during Kazemi's period at the hospital, are believed to document the torture and violence inflicted on her during her interrogation. Following Sepehrlou's arrest, the government of Ottawa has reduced its contact with Iran.

The Canadian foreign minister Pierre Pettigrew said that until Iran agrees to an international investigation of Kazemi's death, Canada will cut off contact with Iran in all but three areas: the Kazemi case, Iran's human rights record and nuclear non-proliferation.

The Canadian government and the many international human rights organisations, have expressed concern over the fate of lieutenant Sepehrlou, who could be charged with spying and condemned to death.

I think AP is an American based Press. Isnt it? ;-)

Any way, the word is spread about them and I think people can decide if that is what they saw or not
