Those darn election computers - Iran

Way way beyond the knitting. But to keep things in perspective the Guardian's running coverage of events in Iran is posting this item right now:

11am: The man who leaked the real election results from the Interior Ministry - the ones showing Ahmadinejad coming third - was killed in a suspicious car accident, according to unconfirmed reports, writes Saeed Kamali Dehghan in Tehran.

"Mohammad Asgari, who was responsible for the security of the IT
network in Iran's interior ministry, was killed yesterday in Tehran. Asgari had reportedly leaked results that showed the elections were rigged by government use of new software to alter the votes from the provinces. Asgari was said to have leaked information that showed Mousavi had won almost 19 million votes, and should therefore be president. "

We will try to get more details later.
