Togo: A high risk transition
In this document, Amnesty International appeals to the Togolese government to avoid excessive use of force and to immediately end atrocities committed by the security forces, particularly extrajudicial executions and indiscriminate violence against the civilian population.

However Amnesty International fears a new spiral of violence in this high risk transition period.
