Released from prison, but still tormented

According to a bloody video posted on Facebook today, a 23 year old male committed suicide shortly after being released from prison by jumping off of an overpass.
The description accompanying the video explains that the boy was arrested for participating in Iran’s post-election demonstrations. “After he was tortured and raped in prison his father posted bail but they came back to take him again,” it says. “He ran away and he went up a pedestrian bridge above the Keshavarze Street in Esfahan and he threw himself over.” The man you see in the video is the boy’s father.
