Reports of Prison Abuse and Deaths Anger Iranians

"Some prisoners say they watched fellow detainees being beaten to death by guards in overcrowded, stinking holding pens. Others say they had their fingernails ripped off or were forced to lick filthy toilet bowls."

"More bruised corpses have been returned to families in recent days, and some hospital officials have told human rights workers that they have seen evidence that well over 100 protesters have died since the vote."

"Hospital officials have described receiving bodies of those killed in protests, with the total far in excess of 20, the government’s initial figure."

And our president had trouble speaking out against a government that would do this for a week.
