Amnesty International is seriously concerned about the deteriorating health of at least 55 detainees who are held in several police stations and prisons in the capital Bissau. One detainee died on 4 February 2001, apparently of typhoid fever. Amnesty International is urging the authorities to provide adequate medical care to the detainees as a matter of urgency.
