At least four inhabitants of Kavumu "regroupment" camp: Jean BERAHINO; Cyrille SINIWENUMWE; Immaculée BANZENDORE; and Anatasie NTIRUZOMPERAKO are reported to have died after being beaten during a search of the camp on 7 May. Amnesty International remains concerned for the safety of Bigirimana, who "disappeared" on the same day. Gaspard Ndagibeze and Innocent Ndayizeye, have been transferred to Mpimba Central Prison, and AI no longer considers them at risk of torture or ill-treatment.
