CD Media has been out front in reporting on the Iranian revolution currently smoldering inside the Islamic Persian theocracy. Today, the global wire service, Reuters, finally caught up with our reporting on CD Media’s regional site — Tsarizm.com. We had reported a week ago that deaths in the civil unrest had reached 1,500.
About 1,500 people were killed during less than two weeks of unrest that started on Nov. 15. The toll, provided to Reuters by three Iranian interior ministry officials, included at least 17 teenagers and about 400 women as well as some members of the security forces and police, wrote Reuters.
The toll of 1,500 is significantly higher than figures from international human rights groups and the United States. A Dec. 16 report by Amnesty International said the death toll was at least 304. The U.S. State Department, in a statement to Reuters, said it estimates that many hundreds of Iranians were killed, and has seen reports that number could be over 1,000.
The figures provided to Reuters, said two of the Iranian officials who provided them, are based on information gathered from security forces, morgues, hospitals and coroner’s offices.
