A grisly reminder of the regime: 

Mohammad Kamrani was arrested during the mass demonstrations that took place on Tortured-to-death 18th of Tir (July 9) and was taken to Evin prison on the same day. On July 15 his parents were informed that their son  had been release, but upon arriving at Evin they were informed that their son had been transferred to the prison hospital due to minor wounds. Soon after arriving at the hospital his parents discovered that their son was on the brink of death and hence took him to a major hospital where Mohammad passed away. The hospital listed severe torture as the cause of death.

Mohammad was planning on taking his medical school entrance exam last week.
