Islamic Republic of Iran: Eight killed as notorious Evin prison goes up in flames



Protests are not slowing down in Iran. Instead, they’re increasing. At least eight people have been killed in a fire and explosions at Iran’s notorious Evin prison. It went up in flames amid anti-government protests. “Gunshots and screams” were also heard coming from inside the burning Evin prison, signifying the murder of inmates by Iran’s prison guards, who were likely trying to escape the fire.

Some other incidents in a protest that many are now terming a revolution:

  • The Islamic regime killed 23 children as it has tried to crush demonstrations.
  • An Iranian actress not only threw off her niqab in a powerful protest against Iran’s dress codes, but she stripped layer by layer, clearly sacrificing her own safety for the freedom of her country. Also in the video appear the words “my body, my choice,” an appropriate and effective statement that stands as a stark contrast to the use of the same declaration by pro-abortion women.
  • Ayatollah Khamenei is now attacking British Shia as “Wahhabis” and apostates. He is displeased that London-based Persian language media outlets have been providing steady coverage of the ongoing protests. He views this as a betrayal and as promotion of the protests.

“At least 8 killed in fire at Iran’s notorious Evin Prison amid anti-government protests”, by Henry Austin, NBC, October 16, 2022:

At least eight people were killed and dozens more were injured after a large fire broke out at a notorious prison housing political prisoners and anti-government activists in Iran’s capital, Tehran, the semi-official Tasnim news agency reported Monday, citing the country’s judiciary.

In the fifth week of nationwide anti-government protests triggered by the death of a young woman in police custody, one of several videos published to Twitter showed large flames and plumes of smoke rising from Tehran’s Evin Prison.

In another video shot outside the facility, gunshots and screams can be heard coming from inside the facility, which is also known to hold foreign citizens.

NBC News has verified both videos.

Citing Iran’s judiciary, IRNA reported that the blaze started after inmates set fire to prison uniforms at a warehouse and that there were “skirmishes” between prisoners and staff members.

The agency added that four people had died from smoke inhalation and that 61 others were injured. Four people were in critical condition. It was later reported that another four of those who had been injured had died, according to Tasnim….
