Protests: Prominent blogger Ronaghi released on bail in Iran

Prominent Iranian blogger Hossein Ronaghi has been released on bail. As the Iranian news agency Isna reported, the release from the judiciary was justified by the victory of the Iranian national soccer team against Wales at the soccer World Cup in Qatar.

Concerns about Ronaghi's health, who has been on a hunger strike for more than a month, have been growing for weeks.

The well-known activist was recently treated in a hospital after his condition had deteriorated. The 37-year-old is one of the best-known human rights activists in Iran. Shortly after the nationwide protests broke out in September, Ronaghi was surprised by security forces during a TV interview. After escaping, he turned himself in to the authorities a few days later and was violently arrested. Ronaghi's family accuses the security apparatus of torturing the man in the notorious Ewin prison and breaking both of his legs.

The nationwide protests were triggered by the death of the Iranian Kurd Jina Mahsa Amini in mid-September. She died in police custody after being arrested for breaking Islamic dress codes. Again and again, the state power had taken action against well-known activists and celebrities who showed solidarity with the protests. Around 18,000 demonstrators have already been arrested, according to human rights activists.
