Senior Islamist militiaman killed in northern Iran

SMCCDI (Information Service):
A senior Islamist militia commander was killed, on Saturday, by 'unknown assailants' according to the Islamic republic's official sources.

The victim, named Hassan Mohammad-Poor, was killed while driving in the Tapeh Zibashahr road of the Golestan province located in northeast Iran.

No details about the attack, nor any information on the identity and fate of the 'assailants' have been communicated; but the attack confirms the increasing use of violence against the Islamic regime's symbols of power and agents by an increasing number of exasperated Iranians.
