Tehran's Elm-o-Sanat (Science and Technology) University held a ceremony today on would have been the 27th birthday of Kianoush Assa, a graduate petro-chemistry student who was killed by security forces during protests on June 15, 2009.
Kianoush's family searched for him for almost ten days, during which time security and judicial officials gave them the runaround. His body was finally identified by his family at the coroner's morgue on June 24.
The following is a video of Kianoush playing the tanbour. RIP.
