Lebanon: Torture allegations in wake of Sidon armed clashes
Information indicates that the death in custody of Nader al-Bayoumi, detained following armed clashes between the military and followers of Sunni Muslim cleric Sheikh Ahmed al-Asseer in the southern city of Sidon, resulted from torture. The Lebanese authorities must ensure that full, independent and impartial investigations are opened immediately into this death as well as into other allegations of torture and other ill-treatment. They must also take immediate steps to prevent any further acts of torture or other ill-treatment at detention facilities run by the Lebanese army.
