 Eleven prisoners at Karaj's Rajai Shahr Prison were reportedly transferred to solitary confinement on the morning of Sunday April 16 in preparation for their executions.

"Typically, executions are carried out on Wednesdays at Rajai Shahr Prison. Chances are that the execution sentences for these eleven prisoners will be carried out on Wednesday," a close source tells Iran Human Rights.
