The head of Iran’s prison service has apologized after leaked videos showing the abuse of detainees at Tehran’s notorious Evin prison.

Hackers posted clips showing guards beating prisoners and dragging one of them to the ground.

Many political prisoners, dual nationals and foreigners are held in Evin Prison.
