ImageTehran, Iran, Jul. 27 – Iran hanged 29 people in the capital city Tehran on Sunday, state television reported.

All 29 were hanged in Tehran's notorious Evin Prison at 05.10 am (00.40 GMT).

Tehran’s chief prosecutor Saeed Mortazavi described those hanged today as “trouble-makers”. They had been convicted of adultery, drug trafficking or murder.

Iranian authorities routinely execute dissidents on bogus charges such as armed robbery and drug smuggling.

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.
