It has now been confirmed on December 5, 2006, that the photographer was Jahangir Razmi, who is now 57 and lives in Tehran. He worked for the newspaper Ettela'at at the time. The image was taken with a Nikon FE Camera and Nikkor 28mm lens using Kodak ASA 400 Tri-X film. (UPI Photo/Jahangir Razmi/Files)
