At least 52 prisoners have been reported missing since 5 July 2008, when disturbances in Saydnaya Military Prison led to the deaths of at least 17 prisoners and five military police. The families of the missing men have spent two long years trying to find out what happened to their relatives. Amnesty International has established that 18 of the prisoners are victims of enforced disappearance, as defined by international law, and is stepping up its campaign to uncover the truth about all of Saydnaya's missing prisoners.
