Most of the photos in this collection were taken in the room where secular political activists Dariush and Parvaneh Forouhar were murdered by Iran's state security agents on November 22, 1998.

The victims' daughter Parastoo was preparing for a ceremony marking the murders. She has condemned the judiciary for holding secret trial for the 10 agents allegedly involved in the killings.

"The show that Iran's judiciary put on in the name of justice was a double blow against the dead and those left behind," she told 2,500 gathered at a mosque in Tehran. "It was an oppression of a nation seeking justice."
