Four inmates killed in tenrah prison

Four prisoners died in a fire that raged overnight in the Iranian capital's notorious Evin prison, said the judiciary in the Islamic republic which has been rocked by a month-long protest movement sparked by the death of Mahsa Amini. "Four prisoners died due to smoke inhalation caused by the fire and 61 were injured," the judiciary authority's website Mizan Online reported, adding that four of the injured were in "serious condition". Rights groups had voiced grave fears for the inmates after gunshots and explosions were heard during the blaze from inside the complex, illuminated by flames and smothered by smoke in video footage posted on social media channels. The fire -- blamed on "riots and clashes" and later brought under control according to authorities -- came as Iran has been rocked by protests over the death of 22-year-old Amini after her arrest for violating Iran's strict dress code for women.
