Iranian regime murders daughter at father's funeral, mother dies of cardiac arrest

In an earlier post, I reported that the Iranian opposition had urged a big turnout for the funeral of Ezzatollah Sahabi (or Sehabi), a former regime official who had been on the outs with the Islamic rulers in Iran for some thirty years.
Iranian security forces disrupted the funeral, and struck and killed Haleh Sahabi, Ezzatollah Sahabi's 57-year old dissident daughter.
Dr. Haleh Sahabi, daughter of Ezatollah Sahabi, who passed away on Monday, died when security forces attacked the funeral of her father. According to Mizan Press, a website close to nationalist-religious groups, when Ezatollah Sahabi's body was brought out of his home to be taken to the cemetery, security forces attacked Haleh Sahabi to prevent her from overseeing the funeral.

Doctors said that she died from cardiac arrest.
