Iran: Scores of young Kurds arrested

Tehran, 7 Feb. (AKI) – Two Kurdish students have been arrested in Iran for unknown reasons, increasing the number of arrested Kurdish students to 11.

Jamshid Bahrami and Salam Nabati, art and psychology students respectively, were reportedly taken away by agents belonging to Iran’s Intelligence Ministry from their house in Mariwan, in western Iran.

It has been common practice for a few months now, that Kurdish students, feminists, religious, union leaders and journalists are being arrested without a precise reason.

Two weeks ago, arrested Kurdish student Ebrahim Lotfollahi died during interrogations while reportedly being tortured by the authorities in the city of Sanadaj.

A judge has rejected the appeal of the family to have an autopsy performed on Lotfollahi’s body.

The Iranian government considers the minority Iranian Kurds as potential enemies.

Unlike their Persian counterparts who are Shia, Kurds belong to the Sunni branch of Islam.
