Neda Salehi Agha Soltan was a 26-year-old Iranian philosophy student in Tehran who was senselessly murdered by a sniper during street confrontations between Iranian security forces and opposition Green protesters. The amateur-quality cellphone video that captured her bloody demise was posted online and quickly went viral, making her death a worldwide symbol of what can happen to those who dare to speak out against Iran's strict theocracy. Just as the photographs from Abu Ghraib Prison shamed America, "This is an image that will be burnt into the Iranian psyche," one Iranian analyst said. "It will haunt the regime forever."
