Updated August 19 – Neda Soltan’s accused gunman is allegedly Abbas Kargar Javid. Javid is a militiaman of the Iran government. The doctor who went to the aid of Neda Soltan is allegedly Arash Hejazi. Hejazi is now in the UK with his wife and baby son. Hejazi said he might be applying for asylum now that his name and identity has been exposed. Hejazi sad he feared reprisals from the Iranian government.
It has taken so long for the gunman to be identified. Does it surprise anyone that the doctor is also the one who confirmed he saw Abbas Kargar Javid as the man who shot at Neda Soltan? Hejazi claimed the crowd has taken Javid’s identification cards but released him.

A woman, allegedly named “Neda” from Iran, was shot dead by a single bullet. A video poster claimed Neda was shot as she was standing on the street next to her father, watching the protesters. Why was Neda shot? The suspected shooter was a Basij soldier hiding from one of the rooftops of the civilian houses. Neda was wearing modern garb; in a top and blue jeans.
The sharp shooter aimed at the heart. The bullet ripped through the Iranian woman’s heart. Neda died within 2 minutes. There were at least two Iranian men who rushed to Neda’s aid after she collapsed on the street. One man claimed to be a doctor. He said he used his hands to put pressure on Neda’s wound, to try to stem the flow of blood. A man was seen trying to give Neda mouth to mouth resuscitation. Blood gushed out of Neda’s nostrils and mouth and soon, Neda was dead.
Warning – graphic video of a dying woman.

Updated on June 21, with another video of Neda Soltani.
Neda has been identified by some bloggers as being Neda Soltani, a student of philosophy in Iran. Neda Soltani was standing next to her father, who was dressed in a blue and white striped T shirt. Neda Soltani may have been wearing a dark colored head scarf but the video was not clear. Ms Soltani and Mr Soltani walked away from the camera’s view and the video was cut at that point.
