Tehran, Iran, Mar. 07 – Authorities hanged five men in a prison in the Iranian capital on Wednesday, the government-run news agency Fars reported.

The men were hanged at dawn inside Tehran’s notorious Evin Prison.

They were accused of murder, the report said.

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.
