Outside the gates of Terhan's notorious Evin prison, hundreds wait impatiently û some with blankets spread out in the parking lot on the street below, making time for dinner.

The improvised picnic area has become a second home to the families of those arrested in the massive roundups that accompanied Iran's post-election unrest. They were jailed both before and during the authorities' ongoing violent crackdown, which started a week after protests swelled in the wake of the Jun. 12 disputed polls.
