A new video has surfaced, apparently leaked by a member of the Basij (itself an encouraging sign), that shows the late night assault on the University of Tehran by the junta's thugs. A reader explains:

The BBC Persian reporter in London explains how the Basij try to enter the dorms a few times and they fail at first as the students resist with rocks and whatever they can throw ... but the Basij finally force their way in and the indiscriminate beating begins. You can even hear the more humane ones of the attackers asking others to stop beating defenseless people they arrest.

If you are squeamish, do not click play:

Five students were killed that night.
