Sudan: Fear of torture / incommunicado detention / excessive use of force.

, Index number: AFR 54/018/2003

The students, Hassan Ali, Mohamed Siddig, Omar al-Amin, Mohamed al-Mustafa Hashem, Ammar Najm al-Din, Taher Bashiri, Sami Yousef Ismail, and seven other students are being detained incommunicado and are at risk of torture. They were among scores of students detained after a wave of violent clashes between security forces and student demonstrators at a number of universities in Sudan, during which at least three students died. Amnesty International is concerned that the security services may continue to kill or injure people through the use of excessive force on demonstrators.
