Woman immolates self to avoid return to Iran jail
Tehran, Iran, Jul. 26 ? A 30-year-old woman set herself on fire outside a justice department office in southern Iran on Monday evening, eye-witnesses reported.
The unidentified woman was on temporary parole from prison in the southern city of Marvdasht and had gone to the justice department to request an extension of her prison leave. When her application was rejected, she attempted to commit suicide by setting herself on fire. She is reportedly in critical condition.
A Marvdasht resident reached by telephone said it was rumored in town that the woman had been brutally treated by prison guards.
Prison conditions in Iran have become the focus of international concern after the publication of a report by an internal investigative body of Iran?s judiciary. The report discovered serious cases of torture, solitary confinement, long-term detention without trial, and other abuses.

Eight women were arrested in the northern province of Gilan as part of a new clamp-down on ?social corruption?, the semi-official Jomhouri Islami reported on Sunday.
?The women were arrested for disrespecting Islamic virtues and for having repulsive and immoral attire?, the hard-line daily added.
The daily added that women police officers in patrols belonging to the Directorate to Fight Social Corruption were roaming the streets to find women violating the stringent dress code and ?to fight public displays of corruption and mal-veiling?.
Kurdish women?s rights activist arrested in Iran
Tehran, Iran, Aug. 04 ? A prominent women?s rights activist in Iranian Kurdistan was arrested during a gathering organised in protest against the murder of a young Kurd by Iran?s State Security Forces, a Persian-language website reported.
The website Rooz reported that Roya Toloui, the editor of Rassan, a monthly based in the Kurdish city of Sanandaj, was arrested after being summoned by the intelligence unit of the SSF on several occasions in the past few months on charges of ?disturbing the peace? and ?acting against national security?. She had also been accused of ?inciting ethnic division?.
Toloui?s monthly Rassan had so far published three issues all of which mainly discussed the plight of female Kurds in Iran.
Born in 1966, Toloui holds a postgraduate degree in practical science and, with her husband, owns a medical laboratory in Sanandaj. She is a founding member of the Association of Kurdish Women in Favour of Peace in Kurdistan. She has a daughter and a son.
On several occasions, the authorities had warned Toloui not to carry out interviews with foreign radio stations.
Iran?s restive Kurdish population have been the victims of systematic oppression by the Iran?s clerical leadership since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
