By KJ Mullins     Jun 20, 2009 in Politics
The world is watching as the government and the people clash in Iran over the recent elections. As mounting violence overwhelms the hospitals embassies are opening their doors to the victims.
The nations of the world are opening their doors to the victims of violence in Tehran. Reports coming out via twitter and spotty cell phone conversations tell of the increasing death tolls and injured protesters.
On Saturday at least 19 protesters were killed in the streets according to UPI. According to unconfirmed sources CNN though says the death toll could be much higher with at least 150 lives snuffed out by police and basijis using nightsticks, water cannons, tear gas and fire hoses. Footage emerging from the scene shows some victims who appear to have been shot.
Protesters are fighting back against the police. According to the government run television station 300 police officers have been injured during the protests.
The victims of violence in Tehran can be taken to the following embassies in Tehran:
Australian, Canadian, Finnish, German, British, Netherlands, Norwegian, Belgian, Mexican, Portuguese, French, Swiss (includes the American embassy), Polish, Spanish, Austrian and Danish.
