Ahmad Zaidi bin Mohamad Aris, Ahmad bin Awang, Tian Chua, Abdul Malek Hussein, Ikhwan Abdul Jabar, Mohamed Razali bin Nordin. At least 18 others. Amnesty International fears that at least 24 people, including those named above, may be ill-treated in detention. They have been detained in the last 24 hours in connection with demonstrations in support of Anwar Ibrahim, the former Deputy Prime Minister, sentenced on 14 April 1999 to six years' imprisonment for misuse of power.
