Paolo Coelho links to Neda’s video…

Paolo Coelho, the author of The Alchemist, and various other books, blogs about Neda, and posts a link to her YouTube video (as told by CNN). The author writes that the doctor – who can be seen trying to rescue Neda (the man in the blue shirt is Neda’s music teacher, the doctor is the man in the white shirt and jeans) – is his best friend in Tehran.

“My best friend in Iran, a doctor who showed me its [Tehran’s] beautiful culture […] in 2000, who fought a war in the name of the Islamic Republic, […] who always stood by real human values, is seen here trying to resuscitate Neda – hit in her heart.”
