Iran kills 7 lawyers representing detainees: Jerusalem Post

In a particularly brazen assault on the rule of law, the Iranian regime is murdering and executing lawyers representing those jailed during the post-election protests, according to the Jerusalem Post -- beating some to death in prison, hanging others on trumped-up drug charges.
"The government is targeting lawyers - and as a result, many have stopped representing protesters."
How accurate is the Jerusalem Post's reporting on Iran? On July 1, the paper reported that six Mousavi supporters had been hanged in Mashhad. That report seems neither to have been echoed nor denied by other mainstream sources.
