Nick du Toit, N.G. "Bones" Boonzaaier, at least 12 other foreign nationals accused of plotting a coup d'état and Weja Chicampo, were arrested on 9 March and are now held incommunicado in the capital, Malabo. Some or all have reportedly been severely tortured, and one of them has died, apparently as a result. Torture is a routine practice in Equatorial Guinea. The authorities say the men will be tried on charges which carry the death penalty.
