Concerns deepen over arrests in Iran
7 Human rights activists in Iran have raised concerns about mass arrests during the country’s largest protests in nearly a decade, after at least three demonstrators died in a notorious Tehran jail.
Two members of the Iranian parliament confirmed on Monday that one detainee, Sina Ghanbari, had died in Evin prison.
Separately, Nasrin Sotoudeh, a prominent human rights lawyer, said that at least two other protesters had died in the jail. They have not been identified.
At least 21 people died after violent clashes between protesters and security personnel during more than a week of demonstrations.
