The fate of more than 14 army officers and civilians, victims of "enforced disappearance" between April and August 2006 remains unknown. The men were detained by members of the security forces allegedly because they were involved in or had knowledge of the attack on N'Djamena carried out by an armed opposition group on 13 April 2006. The Chadian authorities have refused to disclose information on the whereabouts of these men, the state of their health, or confirm whether they are alive or dead. If alive, Amnesty International believes that the men are at serious risk of torture.
