Blogger's Death in Iran Window Onto Cyber Patrols

http://j.mp/UMIhWB  (AP / ABC)

  "In his last blog entry, activist Sattar Beheshti wrote that Iranian
   authorities had given him an ultimatum: Either stop posting his "big
   mouth" attacks against the ruling system or tell his mother that she
   will soon be in mourning.  "We will tear down your cruel cage,"
   Beheshti typed on Oct. 29 before signing off.  A day later he was
   arrested. Within a week, his family had collected his body. They began
   calls for an investigation that have been echoed by Washington,
   European allies and rights groups."
