ImageTehran, Iran, Nov. 26 – Iranian authorities on Wednesday hanged 10 people, including a woman, in Tehran's notorious Evin Prison.

All 10 were accused of murder, the state-run news agency Fars quoted the official presiding over the executions, identified as Mr. Jabberi, as saying.

The woman was identified by other state media as Fatemeh Haqiqat-Pajouh. She was accused of killing her temporary husband, although there are reports that she did so since he had tried to rape her daughter from a previous marriage.

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

Executions in Iran have risen sharply in the second half of the year. At least 63 people were hanged in August, and 29 people were hanged simultaneously in Tehran on 25 July.

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.
