Tehran, Iran, Oct. 18 – Iranian authorities hanged eight men and a woman in Tehran’s notorious Evin Prison, state media reported on Thursday.

Six of the men were identified by their first names Babak, Seddiq, Morteza, Kiyan, Behzad, and Hamid.

All nine were hanged Wednesday morning, the official daily “Iran” wrote.

The woman was identified as 30-year-old Fakhteh.

The names of the other two men were not given.

All nine were accused of murder.

Separately, three other men were hanged in public on Wednesday in the southern Iranian city of Shiraz, state media reported.

The men were called Vahid E., Mohammad A. and Ahmad E., the government-owned news agency Fars quoted Jaber Baneshi, the public prosecutor of Shiraz, as saying.

They were accused of kidnapping and disrupting public order among other charges.

Evin Prison was built by the Shah’s regime as a maximum security prison to house political dissidents, but it became the Islamic Republic’s most dreaded gulag and the site of thousands of political executions.
