Saeeda Pour-Aghaie

- raped and killed in detention

Green Brief #63, August 30:

21. Saeeda Pour-Aghaie, a young girl, was raped and killed in detention. Confirmed reports say Saeeda was arrested by Basijis, from her home, for chanting Allaho Akbar from her rooftop. She was taken into detention, raped and then killed. Her body was burnt, except for her legs from her knees downwards, with a strong acid, to hide the evidence of her brutal ordeal.

Twenty days after her initial arrest, her mother was taken to the morgue and her body was identified. Her mother was not allowed to take her body for burial. She was later buried in the 302 section of Beheshte Zahra, in secret, without her family's knowledge.

Her family has been put under extreme pressure, to say the cause of Saeeda's death, was the result of complications arising from a kidney infection.

22. At least two reliable sources, claim they have received reports, that unmarked graves in Beheshte Zahra's 302 section, are the graves of women, who have been raped and then killed, after being arrested for protesting. This could not be confirmed by other sources at this time.
