Participants at the 16th session of the Human Rights Council in Geneva, Switzerland, 21 March 2011. For the first time in its five year history, the Council appointed a special investigator to monitor Iran’s compliance with international human rights standards. The decision, by a vote of 22 to 7 with 14 abstentions, reflected the world’s growing impatience with Iran over its increasing violations of human rights. UN Photo by Jean-Marc Ferre.
