Leader of Iran's student protest missing

It is now believed that one of the leaders of the recent Tehran student protests is missing.

According to Reporters Without Borders, Mr. Abed Tavancheh, who runs this informative blog in Persian, is now missing.
    Tavancheh has been out of contact with his family and friends since May 26th, and can't be reached on his mobile phone. He had participated in the rioting between pro-democracy youths and the government-controlled Basij student militias that recently broke out on his campus.
Let me add that he was also among the very first students who started reporting the protests against the Iranian regime.

Please spread the word, and let's not forget that while the US government is willing to negotiate with the butchers and Islamofascists ruling Iran, millions of Iranians are desperately seeking to get their country rid of the freaking mullahs.
