A young Iranian blogger, Omid Mir Sayafi, died in prison on Wednesday, where he was imprisoned for insulting Iran's spiritual leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, his lawyer Mohammad Ali Dadkhah said Thursday.

 

"I don't have the official report, but an official at the prison said that Sayafi committed suicide," Dadkhah said, adding that he demanded "an immediate inquiry and autopsy to determine the cause of death." (AFP)
