Iranian  civil rights leader Hossein Ronaghi, transferred to a hospital in Tehran as grow concerns over his health


Concerns over the health of Iran's hunger strike civil rights Hossein Ronagi have been heightened after he was transferred from the notorious Evin prison, where he is being held, to a hospital in Tehran.

Prison authorities notified Ronaghy's family on November 13 that they had transferred him to Day General Hospital. Many people in the Iranian capital gathered in front of the hospital and surrounding streets and chanted slogans in support of the activist.

Videos posted on social media showed security personnel trying to disperse the crowd outside the hospital. Gunshots were heard, but it was not clear where they were coming from. Some reported tear gas being fired into the crowd.


Hossein Ronaghi was arrested amid recent protests that rocked the country over the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini after she was arrested by the moral police for allegedly wearing a headscarf or headscarf improperly.
