Security forces arrest 10 outside Evin prison

Continuing their pre-election cracdown, the mullahs had more protesters arrested today.

Tehran, Jun. 14 – At least 10 people were arrested this afternoon by Iran’s paramilitary police for taking part in a sit-in outside Tehran’s Evin Prison.

The protesters had gathered to declare their support for political prisoners presently on hunger strike inside Evin. Evin Prison was built by the Shah’s regime as a modern security prison to house political dissidents, but it became the Islamic Republic’s most dreaded gulag and the site of numerous political executions.
