The humanrights and womanrightsactivist Saba Vasefi slipped into a coma following an accident.
She was in Shahriar near Tehran to pursue a death sentence case. A motorcyclist ran into her, causing her head to hit against a hard object on the roadside.
Since she is in coma in hospital and doctors said that it is not clear when she might regain.
One day before, security agents raided and searched her house and wanted to arrest her.
In January 2010 she was dismissed from her work at Shahid Beheshti University for unknown reasons.She had worked at the University as a professor of Persian Literature since 2006.

The International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran made a report about the condition of prisoners of Evin Prison’s Ward 350, of Correctional Facility 3, where political prisoners are kept.
Except being overcrowded, the food in the ward is like in other wards in Evin prison (Wards 1, 7, 8, and the Women’s Ward) of extreme bad quality. It has caused food poisoning among the prisoners. The prisonstore also has irregular openingstimes and sometimes don't open at all.
More then 100 political prisoners live in five rooms on the lower floor.The free space in each room (space not covered by beds) is less than 15 sq. meters.
Prisoners in this ward also have to deal with the abusive and insulting behavior of 350’s Warden, Bozorgnia, who is famous for mistreating and abusing prisoners .
