Iran still claims Kazemi fell in the shower.

No, they're not actually saying that, but they are denying the eye-witness reports of the emergency room doctor who first treated the Iranian-born Canadian photographer, Zahra Kazemi.

Dr. Shahram Azam told the Toronto Globe & Mail, "Everything I saw indicated that organized torture and not an injury was what caused her death," including what he called strange signs of violence and evidence of rape. Azam spoke of broken fingers, missing finger nails, and "brutal damage to her genitals."

IranMania is carrying the denials by Iran's foreign ministry spokesman, Hamid-Reza Asefi. Although Iran admitted last summer that Kazemi had been beaten in prison, they say Azam speaksssss with forked tongue. Ugh.
Hamid-Reza Asefi

Iran is also claiming Azam, who was a major in the Iranian army, never worked at the hospital.

Right. And there are no Americans in Baghdad.
