Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Monday asked a senior judge to launch an investigation into the death of Neda Agha Soltan, a young woman who became an icon of Iran's opposition after video capturing her bleeding to death on a Teheran street was circulated worldwide. According to Ahmadinejad's Web site, Ahmadinejad said Soltan was slain by "unknown agents and in a suspicious" way, convincing him that "enemies of the nation" were responsible.
