Tehran Prison Blaze Killed 4 Inmates

By 10/16/2022 4:06 PMNo CommentsBy YidInfo Staff

The court announced Sunday that four prisoners died in a soaring fire at a notorious prison holding political prisoners and anti-government activists in the capital of Iran.

The tragic scenes have rippled throughout Iranian social media.

As nationwide anti-government protests sparked by the murder of a young lady in police custody began their sixth week, flames and dense smoke rose from Tehran’s Evin Prison on Saturday evening.

Online videos audited gunshots and explosions in the vicinity of the prison.

After several hours, the fire was put out, and no prisoners were freed, according to state media.

While official media has provided various descriptions of the violence, authorities have attempted to separate the events at the prison from the continuing protests.

At Evin, where hundreds are detained, human rights organizations have documented ongoing abuse of detainees.

Inmates’ families gathered on Sunday near the prison, hoping to hear from their loved ones.
