Vigils protest imprisonment of Iranian HIV/AIDS doctors

The past week saw numerous protests against Iran’s continued imprisonment of two doctors and HIV/AIDS advocates (see this post for background):

Health professionals on Tuesday held vigils in several cities worldwide to protest the imprisonment of Iranian brothers Kamiar and Arash Alaei — physicians and leading HIV/AIDS advocates in the country — following the release of Iranian-American journalist Roxana Saberi, the Albany Times Union reports. Vigils were held in cities such as New York City and Washington, D.C., as a day of global protest against the brothers’ imprisonment. Vigils also were held in cities across Africa, Asia, Europe and South America, according to the Times Union.
