GENEVA — The destruction earlier this month of a cemetery in Iran used for the mass burial of hundreds killed in the aftermath of the Islamic revolution in 1979 is an outrageous violation of human dignity, the Baha’i International Community said today. At least 15 Baha’is were among those buried at the site.

“The destruction of the Khavaran cemetery by government agents goes against all concepts of respect for the dead in any culture, including values preached in Islam,” said Diane Ala’i, the representative of the Baha’i International Community to the United Nations in Geneva.
