Minister of Health and Medical Education Masoud Pezeshkian on Wednesday denied that scars of other injuries had been found in the body of photojournalist Zahra Kazemi, IRNA reported from Tehran.
Kazemi's mother Mrs Ezzat Kazemi had told Persian daily Yas-e-Nou that she noticed scars on the body of her daughter.
Dr Pezeshkian said that the scars Kazemi's mother had referred to in her interview with the daily had been caused by injection in the hospital.
He also rejected that Kazemi had a such scar below her eye.
Pezeshkian said that the videotape of Zahra Kazemi's body is available and there is no sign of other wounds except for the blow to her head.
