TEHRAN, Iran – Iran's hard-line judiciary acknowledged for the first time Saturday that at least three prisoners detained after June's disputed presidential election were beaten to death by their jailers, confirming a key claim by the country's opposition movement.
In a statement, the judiciary said 12 officials at Kahrizak prison were charged — three of them with murder. The prison, on the southern outskirts of the capital, Tehran, was at the center of the opposition's claims that prisoners were tortured and raped in custody.
The claims embarrassed Iran's clerical rulers and forced Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei to order the closure of the facility.

And you're missing the point that britguy and myself are bringing to you.
Prisoner murder is completely routine in numerous nations in the world, the US among them.
Yet apparently it's only news-worthy when it's Iranian cops doing the killing. And apparently, certain somebodies who shall, for the moment go unnamed, want to gloss over the apparently uncomfortable fact that it is, in fact, not news at all.
Now why is this?
Oh right, certain other someones have a gigantic hardon for mass murdering the people of Iran for their unforgivable crime of being Muslim.
Gotta invent as many excuses for the coming rape of Persia as possible, huh mrmonsoon? Maybe the Americans will even make a funny movie about it.

mrmonsoon - So the only reason you posted the article in the first place is to demean Iranians, not to mention your obvious hatred of them. Unfortunately you didn't get the response you desired. Oh well it's nice to see some people still deny hatred and ignorance on ATS.
