Iranian women show a poster of the slain Iranian protester named Neda as they drive during a protest against the recent Iranian elections, outside the Federal Building in Los Angeles on June 22, 2009. A video of a blood-drenched young woman named Neda, purportedly killed in the Tehran protests, has become an Internet symbol of the demonstrations and heightened pressure on Iran in its battle with foreign media. The video, showing blood pouring from the nose and mouth of the young woman, was placed online Saturday and has since been viewed hundreds of thousands of times around the world.
