Teenager Recounts Horrific Prison Rape Ordeal In Iran

A 15-year-old boy, Reza, was allegedly locked up in Iran's Basij militia base for 20 days, beaten up, raped repeatedly and subjected to sexual humiliation and abuse.

Reza is so horrified with the incident that he refuses to go outside and is terrified of being left alone.

"My life is over. I don't think I can ever recover," The Times quoted Reza, as saying.

A doctor who is treating him, has confirmed that he is suicidal, and bears the appalling injuries consistent with his story.

Reza's family is also enduring the pain with him and is exploring ways to flee Iran.

Reza's ordeal began in mid-July, when he was arrested along with 40 other teenagers during an opposition demonstration.

He claimed that the arrested teenagers were taken to the Basij militia base, where they were blindfolded, stripped to their underwear, whipped with cables and then locked in a steel shipping container.

Reza claims that three men on the first night singled him out and pushed him to the ground. He further said that one held his head down, another sat on his back and the third urinated on him before raping him.
