Shirin Ebadi, 2003 Nobel Peace Prize winner, interviewed for BBC HardTalk
I've just been watching Gavin Esler interview Iranian human rights campaigner Shirin Ebadi, the broadcast timed to coincide with the presentation today in Oslo of the 2003 Nobel Peace Prize, announced last October. The broadcast is not yet streamed to the BBC website (they are still streaming an earlier interview with Commonwealth Secretary General Don McKinnon), but I expect the Shirin Ebadi interview will appear shortly. She is a most humane and interesting lady. Here's a link.
There's also this article, detailing some of her tough comments directed at the west during her acceptance speech today.
