ImageTehran, Iran, Feb. 23 – Iranian authorities hanged three men in Tehran's notorious Evin Prison, state media reported on Monday.

The men, identified only as Aziz, 25, Hassan, 25, and Mansoor, 34, were hanged on Sunday, the daily Etemad wrote.

They were accused of murder.

At least 59 people were executed in Iran in January.

Iran's judiciary spokesman Ali Reza Jamshidi confirmed on 13 January that two men had been stoned to death for adultery in Mashhad in December while a third man managed to struggle out of the hole he had been buried in.

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 thousands of political executions. Ward 209 is exclusively set aside for political prisoners.
