Iran Torture: Jafar Behkish
Jafar Behkish has lost six members of his family ... brothers, a sister, a brother-in-law ... most of an entire generation ... all dead at the hands of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Jafar Behkish fled to Canada, but many of his siblings were tortured and died brutal deaths after being jailed in Iran. And now one of his two remaining sisters -- Mansoreh Behkish -- has landed in Iran's notorious Evin Prison. This isn't the first time Mansoreh Behkish has been jailed.
But now, her health is failing and Jafar is worried about her safety. Jafar Behkish was in Toronto.
