San'e Zhaleh and Mohammad Mokhtari

San'e Zhaleh - صانع ژاله
Mohammad Mokhtari - محمد مختاری

Two young men shot dead on monday February 14th (25th of Bahman) during the demonstrations that took place a year after the last protests.

San'e Zhaleh was a 26-year-old theater student at Tehran University of Arts. He was a member of a Kurdish Sunni minority, originally from Paveh in Kermanshah.

His death has been used by the regime who attempted to describe him as a "Basiji", member of the Islamist organization and his death has been blamed on members of the MEK, Mojahedeene Khalgh organization. An official funeral ceremony has been staged for him at the Teheran university, but his family were not allowed to attend. They have been threatened not to speak to foreign media and his father was forced to give an interview.

Mohammad Mokhtari was 22 years old university student before he was shot dead by the security forces, he wrote on his Facebook page "God, let me die standing, because I'm tired of this life of degradation"
