, Index number: MDE 24/018/2004

The seven Syrian Kurdish men Fahim Hassan Yusuf, Jomard Fahim Yusuf, Hussain Muhammad Murad, Akram Muhammad Murad, Hassan Muhammad Murad, Khader Nawar Manja and Zeres Nawar Manja were reportedly arrested at their homes in the early hours of 9 March 2004. Their whereabouts are not known but it is believed they may be held in the custody of Political Security in the northern city of al-Hassaka. Amnesty International is concerned that these men are held incommunicado and are at risk of torture or ill-treatment.
