Tehran, Iran, Apr. 20 – Iranian authorities hanged 10 men in Tehran’s notorious Evin Prison on various charges including murder.

The 10 individuals were all hanged in the early hours of Wednesday, the state-run news agency Fars reported.

The report said that the sentences were carried out after they were upheld by Iran’s State Supreme Court.

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.
