    Neda's Story by the Dr. who tried to save her life

    BBC NEWS | Middle East | Iran doctor tells of Neda's death

    Video Interview
    BBC NEWS | Middle East | The man who tried to save Neda


    The protesters know who shot her.
    Dr Hejazi said he first thought the gunshot had come from a rooftop.

    But later he saw protesters grab an armed man on a motorcycle.

    "People shouted 'we got him, we got him'. They disarmed him and took out his identity card which showed he was a Basij member. People were furious and he was shouting, 'I didn't want to kill her'.

    "People didn't know what do to do with him so they let him go. But they took his identity card. There are people there who know who he is. Some people were also taking photos of him."

    Dr Hejazi said he knew he was putting himself in jeopardy by talking about what happened.

    "It was a tough decision to make to come out and talk about it but she died for a cause. She was fighting for basic rights... I don't want her blood to have been shed in vain."

    He added: "She died on the streets to say something."

    Dr Hejazi said he did not believe he could now return to Iran.

    "They are going to denounce what I am saying. They are going to put so many things on me. I have never been in politics. I am jeopardising my situation because of the innocent look in her (Neda's) eyes."

    Here's a list of the dead put together by the protesters. It's vastly different from the "official" 17 dead put out by the Iranian gov't.
