IRAN SAYS NO TO POPE'S BOOK & TORTURES AZERIES
In his meeting with Tony Blair the Pope apparently urged him to reach an accommodation with Iran. Moreover, the Vatican tried to reach out to the Mullahs by using the good offices of the Iranian embassy in Rome to translate Pope Benedict's last book into Farsi.
Alas, it was all for naught. Iran's education ministry has rejected the Vatican's request that it publish and distribute in Iran.
Clearly, for Iran's haughty Mullahs respect is definitely not a two way street.
Bloody clashes started between the forces and demonstrators accompanied by firing gun. It is not ruled out that special provokers among the protesters fired gun.
Garadaghli also said that Iranian low enforcement bodies are using torture on the detained Azerbaijani demonstrators making them say that the US and other Western states are behind these protests. Four protesters died of severe torture in the past two days.
Aren't you glad the BBC remembers Khomeini?
