NCRI - The Iranian regime's security forces have arrested 80 members of the Yarsan Kurd minority protesting for equal rights outside the Iranian parliament in Tehran.

Among those arrested and held in a bus inside Evin prison were two brothers of a Yarsan member who had burnt himself to death in June in anger at the state's suppression of their religion.

Widespread Yarsan community demonstrations also took place in the of cities Kermanshah, Hamedan and Tehran last June in protest at the abuse and humiliation of Yarsan prisoners in Hamedan by regime security forces.

More members of this religious minority also committed suicide by self-immolation during the protest.
