Photo of the day

July 31, 2003

Iran's Vice President Mohammad Ali Abtahi answers questions after a cabinet meeting in Tehran, Iran, Wednesday, July 30, 2003. Abtahi said Wednesday that the Iranian-Canadian photojournalist who died in police custody earlier this month was murdered, the first time an official has admitted that Zahra Kazemi was beaten to death. Kazemi, 54, died July 10, nearly three weeks after she was detained for taking photographs outside a Tehran prison during student-led protests. After 77 hours of interrogation, she was rushed to an intensive care unit in a hospital controlled by hard-line Revolutionary Guards, where she died 14 days later. (AP Photo/Vahid Salemi)
