Reports from Iran’s Fars Province indicate that on July 26 security agents attacked a female doctor and severely beat her. This surgeon, Mrs. Razmjouie, was visiting a patient when security agents pressured her to finish her checkup faster. The surgeon refused to give in to their demands. In response the agents arrested her and transferred her to the public prosecutor’s office with her hands cuffed where she was severely beaten. People at the scene protest these harsh measures and stage a protest gathering outside the governor’s office.
It has also been reported that physicians and hospital staff went on strike protesting this vicious arrest and beating.
