, Index number: AFR 54/053/2005

At 4.30am on 24 May, hundreds of heavily armed police surrounded the Soba Aradi IDP (Internally Displaced Persons) camp, some 30km south of the Sudanese capital Khartoum, preventing outsiders from getting into the camp and residents from moving out of the camp. The police searched houses in the camp and arrested between 50 and 200 people, including those named above. Those arrested may be tortured or ill-treated.
