Tehran, Iran, Jan. 03 – Three men were hanged at dawn on Wednesday in Tehran’s notorious Evin Prison, the official daily Iran reported.

One of the men was identified by his first name Qadir.

Two of the men were accused of murder, while the third was accused of rape.

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.
