Key witness to torture of Iranian democracy protesters dies under mysterious circumstances

AP reports:
An Iranian doctor who went public with reports of tortured protesters he treated at Tehran's most feared detention facility dies, amid conflicting reports of a heart attack, a car accident or suicide — raising opposition accusations that the 26-year-old was killed.
According to the New York Times, it is said that the 26-year old Dr. Ramin Pourandarjani was the "only independent witness to be able to corroborate the charges of torture." (When Iran tortures, it is real torture, not the panties-on-the-head torture or she-touched-my-thigh torture that excites American liberals.)
