Tehran, Jun. 02 – Two men were found dead with their hands tied behind their backs in a river by local residents in southern Iran.

The bodies were discovered in the river Karoun in the city of Ahwaz where there has been plenty of unrest in recent months.

The two unidentified men apparently drowned after their hands were tied behind their backs. Their bodies were bruised and had signs of burning, raising concerns that they were murdered for involvement in the unrest.

In April, at least 62 people were killed and over 1,000 arrested by government forces in week-long clashes between people and security forces in Iran’s southern Khuzestan province.

Fierce fighting brought the province to a complete stand-still, after State Security Forces opened fire on anti-government demonstrations in Ahwaz. The city itself was placed under a de facto martial law after a number of SSF agents were killed by angry demonstrators.

At the time, the main Iranian opposition group People’s Mojahedin said that of the more than 1,000 people arrested many were transferred to undisclosed locations.

Rumour has quickly spread among the local population that the two men found dead were murdered after having taken part in the demonstrations.
