Iran Fires Cybercrimes Official After Blogger's Death

Iranian’s national police chief fired the commander of Tehran’s cybercrimes police unit for negligence in the death of a blogger in prison. The dismissal of the commander, Gen. Saeed Shokrian, follows investigations by Parliament and Iran’s judiciary into the unexplained death of the blogger, Sattar Beheshti, 35, who died in early November just a few days after being arrested by the cybercrimes police unit, known as FATA.
