Here's the BBC's coverage of the event. Note the well-placed image and caption (as appears in original article) of "grave spaces." The implication is left unsaid, but the suggestion is tantalising bait for readers by now emotionally charged from accounts of the martyred symbol of Iranian Freedom: the Iranian regime is quietly burying evidence of its crimes in 'mass graves'...
Death video woman 'targeted by militia'
She was near the area, a few streets away, from where the main protests were taking place, near the Amir-Abad area. She was with her music teacher, sitting in a car and stuck in traffic.The New York Daily further charged the emotional content:

She was feeling very tired and very hot. She got out of the car for just for a few minutes.
And that's when it all happened.That's when she was shot dead. Eyewitnesses and video footage of the shooting clearly show that probably Basij paramilitaries in civilian clothing deliberately targeted her. Eyewitnesses said they clearly targeted her and she was shot in the chest.- Advertisement -
Her name is Neda, which means "voice" in Farsi, and her death has become the central rallying cry of the Iranian rebellion.Hmmm, Facebook and Twitter certainly appear to be playing useful roles in this post-modern revolution:
The fresh-faced teenage girl killed by what appears to be a single sniper shot on the streets of Tehran Saturday is now a potent symbol for Iran's pro-democracy protesters.
Her shocking and quick death in the arms of her howling father was captured on closeup video, posted to Facebook and came to life on computer screens across the globe.
"RIP Neda, the world cries seeing your last breath," was one of a flood of messages on Twitter.
"They killed Neda, but not her voice," read another. "Neda is everyone's sister, everyone's daughter, everyone's voice for freedom," said a third.
Within hours of her death, posters of the girl's face, open-eyed and bloody, were being brandished by demonstrators in Los Angeles and New York City.

He identified her as Neda Soltani, a 16-year-old philosophy student.
A Facebook group created to mourn her calls her "The Angel of Iran."
