January 20, 2006 08:54

Sisters Roya and Ladan Boroumand will unveil on Friday what is believed to be the largest database dedicated to those executed under Iran's Islamic regime. The database is the result of years of examining human rights reports, media accounts, memoirs and other records. The more than 9,400 cases catalogued include that of their father, Abdorrahman Boroumand, whose leadership in resistance movements is believed to have led to his murder. The Boroumand sisters, who live in Washington, D.C., hope their work will serve as a critical tool for Iranians who want to deal with the country's history.
