"She died in a Tehran hospital on 10 July 2003 after falling into a coma, having received head injuries during more than three days of interrogation. "

Shahram Azam, who said he was an emergency room doctor in Tehran's Revolutionary Guard Hospital at the time, contradicts the official Iranian assertion that 54-year-old Zahra Kazemi died after she fainted and hit her head.

Azam said Kazemi had numerous injuries including a damaged skull, a broken nose, broken fingers, missing fingernails and toenails, a smashed big toe, a ruptured left eardrum, battered feet, evidence of a flogging and bruises all over her body.

Azam said that as a male doctor in an army hospital, he was not allowed to examine Kazemi's genitals. A female nurse who tried to insert a catheter noticed "brutal damage to the genital parts", he said.

Not to worry! Iran fears Canada and all the "soft power" Canada can bring to bear!

This is the problem with giving up on your military. Nobody takes you seriously after that.
