"My question is, how is it that this Miss Neda is shot from behind, got shot in front of several cameras, and is shot in an area where no significant demonstration was behind held?" He suggested that the CIA or another intelligence...

We want to work towards agreement and not disagreement, and to hold a dialogue without preconditions in mutual respect," the party chief Mohammad-Reza Khatami, younger brother of moderate President Mohammad Khatami, said...
