ICHRI on Casualties of Green Uprising

The International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran, a Western-based human rights group, said today at least 34 people were killed during election protests in Tehran on 20 June alone, more than three times the number published by the government.

ICHRI has based its estimate on the reports by medical staff at Imam Khomeini Hospital (19 bodies), Rasool Akram Hospital (8 bodies) and Loghman Hospital (7 bodies).

It said there were other hospitals near the demonstrations that could have received dead or injured protesters.

Nobel peace laureate Shirin Ebadi has estimated that 100 were killed during the Green uprising.
