Protests: Mutiny in Tehran's notorious Ewin prison

According to the prison administration, there was a short-term mutiny in the notorious Ewin prison in the Iranian capital Tehran on Saturday evening. "Hooligans and rioters" started an argument with the prison guards and then set the prison's textile warehouse on fire, it said. The fire brigade is in the process of putting out the fire.

However, the situation in the detention center is under control again, the prison management said, according to the Irna news agency. There was also talk of shots and explosions at the detention center on social media. The report did not mention whether the mutiny was related to ongoing anti-system protests in the country.

In the Ewin prison in northern Tehran there are not only numerous political prisoners, but also demonstrators who have been imprisoned there for their participation in the system-critical protests of the past four weeks.
