“There are presently 18 children under two years old in Evin, Raja’ii Shahr and Varamin prisons in Tehran Province,” the daily Sharq reported on Monday. Across the country, 210 children under two years of age are spending time in prison beside their mothers, the paper added.

Iranians among detained attackers
Iraqi Justice Minister, Malek Dohan, said on Sunday, “About 150 Arab nationals detained on charges of involvement in some attacks in Iraq showed up in the country’s courts”. “They numbered between 150 to 160 people from Syria, Jordan, Palestine, Iran, Yemen, Egypt, Morocco and Lebanon,” he added.
