Tehran, Iran, Jul. 31 – An Iranian student arrested in the course of nationwide protests seven years ago died in Tehran’s notorious Evin Prison late Sunday several days after beginning a hunger strike.

Akbar Mohammadi was given 15 years in prison for helping to organise the July 1999 student-led anti-government protests that erupted across the country.

Mohammadi died on the ninth day of his hunger strike. A week after beginning the protest, he refused to take liquids.

Sources said Mohammadi was beaten severely by prison guards prior to his death.
