Seyyed Ali Mousavi Killed in Iran Protest

Over the weekend, and grossly underreported, Seyyed Ali Mousavi, the nephew of the former Presidential candidate Mir-Hossein Mousavi, was killed during protests in Iran. It is reported that he was shot by Iranian Security officials. This comes amidst numerous reports of fatalities during demonstrations.

It has yet to be reported whether he was targeted intentionally or shot randomly.

The Gulf Daily News is reporting:
Video footage showed an enraged crowd carrying away one of the casualties chanting, "I'll kill, I'll kill the one who killed my brother." Witnesses said one victim was an elderly man who had a gunshot wound to the forehead. He was carried away by opposition supporters with blood covering his face.

All the while, our main stream media cannot find anything to talk about other than a man who spent too long in the bathroom on an airplane.

The video below apparently shows Seyyed Ali lying in the streets:
