Tehran Live Blogging Continues


The latest from my eyes and ears on the ground. It doesn't look as if either side is going to go quietly into that good night. It can't be said that Iran's government's existence is hanging in the balance but it's certainly not as feared and respected as it was prior to June 12th.
RT from Iran: Italian Embassy accepting injured at 81, Neauphle Le Chateau Ave. Viva Italy! #iranelection #Tehran #GR88 #Mousavi

RT from Iran: Bassij opened gunfire on people near Sadeghieh, West of Tehran. #IranElection


RT @andydiggle: Holy shit... RT from Iran: Helicopters pouring acid on people from the sky - #Iranelection [Dear gods that's fucked up.]

RT From Iran: hospital source - Tehran hospitals report hundreds of casualtys - #Iranelection

RT If there was a bomb today, where are the pictures from Iran official TV #iranelection #gr88

RT From Iran: Helicopters spraying Chemical-laced water onto crowds. Skin irritant makes feel like water is scalding. #iranelection #gr88

from Iran #iranelection There are hezbollah elements at the squares. They do not speak farsi. Plz let the world know #freedom (I'm trying, hun, I'm trying)

RT RT from Iran: European embassies are open for injured, bring them there !!! #iranelection #gr88 #Iran

RT FROM IRAN: 1000's of ppl traped in enghelab square-being beaten #iranelection #GR88 RT

RT from Iran Mousavi is braving the attacks, allegedly speaking to supporters on Jeyhoon Street, Tehran #IranElection

RT From Iran Unconfirmed - The Army will not follow orders to kill the people - #Iranelection (This would be very interesting if confirmed. It would sow dissent from within the Iranian government.)

Some other disturbing reports from others, hopefully from those actually in Tehran and not just opportunistic American morons who claim to be from Tehran and tinting their avatars green just to get their tweets read:
RT helicopters water most likely contains http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... wash bodies as soon as possible.Use face masks #iranelection

A cell phone in your hand, looks like a machine gun to guards! They'd arrest you for your phone. #IranElection http://ff.im/-4dy48

Foreign journalists just depend on govt. information Feed them! #IranElection

Mousavi - confirmed - IF I AM ARRESTED THE NATION IS TO STRIKE INDEFINITELY - #Iranelection

Violence is picking up at #iranelection protests. NBC bureau chief says he's never seen so many cops in Tehran http://ow.ly/fehv

Then there are many instructions from those on the ground and getting tweets from those on the ground about which European embassies to take the wounded since ambulances are useless:
RT : Confirmed: European embassies are giving care for injured! They help care for acid burns. Hospitals are traps! #IranElection

RT @SimplyDishing: Confirmed: Australian Embassy accepting injured: No. 13, 23rd Street, Khalid Islambuli Ave - Telephone+98 21 8872 445

RT @JessicaVickery Can bring injured to - Dutch Embassy No.36, Jahansouz Alley, Sarbedaran St., Ostad Motahari #iranelection #gr88 #tehran

RT: British embassy is now accepting injured Iranians: 198 Ferdowsi Avenue, Tehran. #IranElection #gr88

RT @naseemfaqihi: Irish Embassy accepting injured, 8, Bonbast Nahid Street, North Kamranieh Ave,Between Niavaran and Farmanieh #iranelection

RT from Iran Please RT Can bring injured to - belgian Embassy No.3,Babak Alley, Shabdiz St.,Shahid Fayyaz Bakhsh Ave., ,#iranelection #gr88

Update: RT Can bring injured to - French Embassy No.85, Nofel Loshato St., Hafez Ave., ,#iranelection #gr88

Update II: Here's what appears to be a complete list of all the embassies in Tehran that may consider or have already decided to take in injured protesters. If you're tweeting, pass this link on, please.

Update III: Someone Google-mapped the locations of all the embassies in Tehraan that are now accepting all the wounded. The casualties are running in the hundreds.

Is it really likely that the Chines Embassy, in this list, is really going to take care of injured?

Who posts this stuff?
