Baha’i woman arrested in Iran
The Iranian regime has arrested a member of the Baha’i community in a raid on her house on Wednesday.
Sima Kiani’s home was inspected by security agents and authorities confiscated her books, religious and family photos, according an informed source.
No information is available about her whereabouts. She has most likely been transferred to Tehran’s Evin Prison, the source added.
Hundreds of Baha’i followers have been jailed, tortured or executed since the founding of the Islamic republic in 1979. The Iranian regime has systematically sought to deprive Baha’i community members their basic rights, such as higher education and employment.
