Political prisoner dies under torture, mother resorts to self-immolation

A political prisoner in the northwestern Iranian city of Oroumieh was killed under torture on Sunday, Herana news agency said Tuesday.

Bahman Massoudi, who was held at solitary confinement, was reportedly killed after being struck repeatedly by a baton wielded by the Iranian regime’s agents. The murderer has been identified as Khanzadeh.

On Monday, following the news of the brutal murder, Mr. Massoudi’s mother attempted to set herself on fire in protest in front of Oroumieh’s central prison, where her son was killed by the Iranian regime’s agents.
