Iran: happened

In the village Tijtij near the city of Marivan, Kurdistan province, are four Kurds killed during clashes between Party for Free Life in Kurdistan (PJAK) and the Basij militia.
According to PressTV the journalist Seymour Hersh revealed in The New Yorker, that USA and Israel are assisting PJAK with weapons and other support.

A month ago the Iranian parliament voted in favour of a draft bill called "Islamic Penal Code" with 196 votes for and seven against.This bill punishes apostates with the death penalty. The new law is not yet in force in Iran: it requires another vote in parliament, and then the signature of Ayatollah Kamenei.
The deathpenalty for changing religion violates one of the most fundamental of all human rights.
The right to freedom of religion is enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, and in the European Convention of Human Rights. It is even enshrined as Article 23 of Iran's own constitution, which states that no one may be molested simply for his beliefs.
In Mashhad is Ramtin Soodmand imprisoned since August and has not been charged.
Soodmand is not a "converted muslim".He is born and raised as a Christian.His father, Hossein Soodmand, converted to Christianity at the age of 13, in 1960 and was hanged as an apostate in 1990.
