According to Amnesty International an Iranian man who had been receiving death threats because of his anti-government blog has died in custody, possibly as the result of torture. Sattar Beheshti was arrested at the age of 35 on October 28th.
The day before his arrest he told Amnesty International “They sent me a message saying, ‘Tell your mother she will soon be wearing black because you don’t shut your big mouth,'” The next day he was taken into custody and whose body was handed back to his family a couple days later.
According to the British Foreign Office minister Alistair Burt, “Behesht’s only crime appears to be advocating the defense of human rights on the Internet,” an ability that dictators in the Middle East are trying to control.
