WASHINGTON (CNN) - President Barack Obama said Tuesday that he has seen the widely-publicized video of a young Iranian woman - known as Neda - bleeding to death on a street in Tehran shortly after being shot by Iranian police last Saturday.
"It's heartbreaking," Obama said. "And I think anyone who sees it knows there's something fundamentally unjust about it."
The president made his remarks during a news conference at the White House.
Best not to ruffle the Iranian government unnecessarily...
The video of Neda, was one of the saddest things I've seen on the news in a long time. I wish the Iranian protestors the best and I will keep them in my prayers.
