The two Iranian dervishes have ended their hunger strike after 90 days because their demands were met.

Seven detained lawyers who had been acting for the dervishes have finally been removed from solitary confinement and brought to the general ward of Evin Prison, where they met with their families on Satruday April 13.

Majzooban-e Noor, the Gonabadi dervishes’ website, reported on the “happy conclusion” of the extended hunger strike by Saleh Moradi and Kasra Nouri, which had caused all their supporters grave concern.

The seven lawyers had spent three months in solitary confinement.
