The identities of more than 430 protesters killed in the streets have been verified so far.
The death toll presently stands at 1,000 and is rising.
At least 4,000 have been injured and 12,000 arrested and detained.
This shocking crackdown against defenseless people in Iran is one of the most horrific crimes of the 21st century and amounts to a manifest crime against humanity.
The United Nations must urgently dispatch a fact-finding mission to Iran to discover the extent of crime against humanity and visit Iranian protesters detained during the uprising.
