One of the Sudanese asylum-seekers detained in Lebanon has died in custody in suspicious circumstances. ‘Awadalla Jum‘a Jarkum, a 19-year- old Sudanese asylum-seeker, reportedly died in Rumieh Prison in Beirut on 3 November. The Lebanese authorities have said in a medical report that the cause of death was a heart attack. However, no autopsy is known to have been carried out, and Amnesty International is gravely concerned about the death.
