Iran Sentences Web Developer to Death

By on 12.6.10 | 1:16PM

Today, the Obama Administration as well as Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China have resumed seven party talks with Iran in Geneva which are scheduled to last until tomorrow.

Iran's chief negotiator, Saeid Jalili, spent a portion of the meeting denouncing a November 29th bombing which resulted in the death of nuclear scientist Majid Shahriri. Iran has formally accused American, British and Israeli intelligence of responsibility for Shahiri's death. The U.S. and the five other nations assembled condemned the attack on Shahiri.

Yet I wonder if anyone at this meeting raised Iran's decision on Saturday to sentence website developer Saleed Malekpour (who resided in Canada prior to his 2008 arrest) to death for "internet offences," "agitation against the regime," and "insulting the sanctity of Islam"?

I doubt it. That would be meddling.
