Iranian Political Icon. Neda, whose name means "voice" in Farsi, was a 26 year-old university student studying philosophy and music. She was brutally gunned down by Iranian security forces while attending a pro Mir-Hossein Mousavi rally in Tehran, challenging Iran's election results declaring President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad the winner. Her murder, recorded on cell phone video and viewed by millions around the world, became a galvanizing force and symbol to those seeking political and democratic reforms within the country. An attempted public funeral was blocked by Iranian officials, only allowing her immediate family members to attend her services. (bio by: Nils M. Solsvik Jr.)
