Please oh please let this *not* be true

The Guardian is reporting 12 dead students in Iran.  Five of the students have been named but were reportedly buried without the knowledge of their families.

In slightly more positive news, Twitter's hosting provider has agreed to postpone maintenance activities until the middle of the night in Iran. Iranian protesters are using Twitter as a means of communicating how to obtain medical care, as police have started arresting protesters who show up at hospitals.

In less positive news, Spiegel.de is reporting that 5,000 Lebanese troops have been dispatched to Iran, presumably to help with crowd control.  @IranElection09's take on the troop presence is that Iranians refuse to kill Iranians.

And in some worrisome news, twitterer @Change_for_Iran has not been heard from for fifteen hours.
