'Neda' becomes rallying cry for Iranian protests

Story Highlights

"Neda" was reportedly killed on Saturday during Iranian protests

Her death captured on video has sparked worldwide debate

"Neda" had become one of top "trending topics" on Twitter by late Saturday

(CNN) -- "RIP NEDA, The World cries seeing your last breath, you didn't die in vain. We remember you."

That post on Twitter came from a man who identified himself as an American guitarist in Nashville, Tennessee.

Amid the hundreds of images and videos of Saturday's brutal crackdown on protesters in Iran that flooded the Internet, it was the graphic video showing the death of a young woman that touched a nerve among those following the events in Tehran for more than a week.

Like most of the information coming out of Tehran, it is impossible to verify her name, Neda, or the circumstances of her apparent death, captured close-up on a bystander's camera.

CNN ran a pixilated version of the video, which was posted on YouTube. It shows a woman in jeans and white sneakers collapsed on the street, as the person with the camera -- most likely from a cell phone -- runs toward her and focuses on her face. watch a portion of the video and how the Twitter community is responding »

One blogger posted that Neda was protesting with her father in Tehran when pro-government Basiji militia opened fire and shot her in the heart.

"The final moments of her tender young life leaked into the pavement of Karegeh Street today, captured by cell phone cameras," the unnamed blogger posted on Newsvine.com. "And not long after, took on new life, flickering across computer screens around the world on YouTube, and even CNN." iReport.com: Share images from Iran

People on Twitter starting forming a discussion group with the "hashtag" .neda to post their comments about her death and media coverage of the killing, as well. watch how online community is following Iranian protests »

It became one of the top "trending topics" on Twitter by Saturday evening, early Sunday Tehran time.

"Neda, ojala que tu muerte no sea en vano," one poster tweeted. "Neda, I hope that your death is not in vain."

This is what the RKBA is all about. Nothing like protesting against the government only to have government thugs come and pick your people off one by one.

Completely agree.

Poor girl didn't have a chance, and knowing that region of the world I'd be willing to bet it was not within moral means.

I was just sitting here thinking the same thing. I have Fox Newsroom on in the background with the same topic rolling.


Just ranting here...
Is this what the US will turn into? Current climates see MSM antagonizing conservative protesters and essentially criticizing and poking fun at over the airwaves. How long until there is an escalation in attacks on any opposition?

I think all those people who want to eliminate the 2nd amendment should be required to live in Iran for a couple years.

Extend that to should be required to live in any country where they suppress their citizens and beat them for speaking out.

You know it would be our tax dollars sending them to other countries, so lets get em all on the same ship and do a tour of these countries and see how many make it back

Truly sad. I have seen some bad things but for someone to lose their life for speaking out against oppression is a sad thing. Send some Marines over there in the middle of the night and send president Auk Ma-dodo to whichever God he sees fit.
