Suspect arrested in murder of Hamilton Head Shop Owner: Iran attributes murder to wave of Canadian Islamophobia

In May of last year, Elham Dashtirahmatabadi, was found critically injured inside High Times — a book, Internet and drug paraphernalia store she owned with her husband at 187 King St. E. — by a police officer who was flagged down by two customers.

Her death from the injuries was ruled a homicide.

A suspect was arrested for this crime recently which, along with the murders of two other Iranian nationals, is attributed by Iran's state-controlled  media as part of  "a new wave of Islamophobia" in Canada.

It's a rather unusual claim, given that the suspects in one of those murders were Arabs, but not atypical of the irrational Iranian press.
