Tehran, Iran, Feb. 16 – Four men were hanged in the Islamic Republic’s most notorious prison, a semi-official daily wrote on Wednesday.

The four men were identified as 24-year-old Najmoddin, Mohammad, 27-year-old Behrouz, and Reza.

They were hanged at dawn on Tuesday in Tehran’s Evin Prison, the hard-line daily Kayhan wrote.

The four men were accused of social crimes.

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.
