TEHRAN — A senior Iranian Revolutionary Guards commander said 36 people were killed in post-election violence including three who died in the notorious Kahrizak prison, a newspaper reported on Thursday.

"The riots had a total of 36 victims, three killed in Kahrizak and about 10 whose place of death is known but it is unclear where the rest were shot and by whom," Abdollah Araghi was quoted as saying by reformist Etemad daily.

Iranian officials had previously said about 30 were killed in the protests triggered by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's re-election.

The opposition, which charges that the June 12 poll was massively rigged, has put the death toll at 72.

More and more lies

Let's see.  First it was 0.  Then it was 20.  Later it became 30.  Now they say 36.  Isn't that 36 number exactly 1/2 of the 72 cases of murdered protesters which Karroubi documented?!!!!


Islam goes to Hell .

The murder for the last up rising is more than 1000. i guess ..

The murders committed for the last up rising on the streets alone might have been more than 1000. left alone other murders committed in the prison due to tortures and many other unknown secret ways .   I estimate their murder crimes 2000. at least ... continue counting more !
