From the web: “Ibrahim Yazdi, Leading Iranian Dissident, Dies at 85”

Ibrahim Yazdi, who emerged as Iran’s foremost dissident after being rejected by fellow revolutionaries as insufficiently radical because he had rebuffed their seizure of the United States Embassy in Tehran in 1979, died on Sunday in Izmir, in western Turkey. He was 85.
