The mother of Neda Agha Soltan, the 27-year-old Iranian protester whose death on 20 June was captured on mobile phone video, has spoken at length to the BBC World Service. The following is a transcript of the interview with Hajar Rostami Motlagh.
How did you first hear about your daughter’s death?
She left the house mid-afternoon. I couldn’t join her but I said I’d keep in touch with her. I managed to get through to her twice. I asked her what was going on. She said the streets are full of people… I asked her to come back home. I told her I was worried about her being out in the crowd. She said fine, I will head back home soon.
