July 18, 2003

Iran's Vice-President Mohammad Ali Abtahi, speaks with media after a Cabinet meeting, in Tehran, Iran, Wednesday, July 16, 2003. Iran confirmed Wednesday Iranian-born Canadian journalist Zahra Kazemi has died of brain hemorrhage due to blows she sustained after detention. 'She has died of brain hemorrhage resulting from blows inflicted on her, ' Abtahi told reporters. It was the first time Iran has confirmed that Kazemi, who died Friday, was beaten. Iran initially said Kazemi, who holds dual Iranian-Canadian nationality, died of a stroke. Kazemi, 54, a freelance photographer from Quebec, was arrested in Tehran on June 23 and branded a spy for taking photos of Evin prison during student-led protests against the ruling Islamic establishment.
