A young Iranian protester took her own life a few days after her release from a detention center, media reported on Sunday.

Yalda Aghafazli, 19, was arrested on October 26 in Enghelab Square in the capital city Tehran and was released 10 days later, without being informed of the charges against her.

Aghafazli had been on hunger strike prior to her release from the Qarchak detention center on November 6.

She took her own life in Tehran on Thursday, with police reporting the cause of her death as an "overdose".
