U.N. human rights chief Navi Pillay has singled out Iran for its crackdown on protestors after last year’s election in an address at the U.N. Human Rights Council.

Pillay said human rights are "deteriorating" in Iran and that she is deeply concerned.

Pillay presented her 2009 report to the U.N. body Thursday.
