Death toll rises to 8 after riots in Iranian prison

Published:

The riots and the fire registered last Saturday in the Evin prison, in Iran, have left a balance of eight inmates dead and six injured, who continue to receive medical care in a Tehran hospital, reports the Iranian agency Mizan.

According to reports, the fire started after an inmate set fire to the clothing store amid clashes between inmates. The incident, prison officials point out, occurred in a section far from the one that shelters political dissidents, so it has no relation to the recent riots in the country.
