By Amnesty International, , Index number: MDE 24/030/2001

Following the arrest of Riad Seif on 6 September, the Syrian Political Security (al-Amn al-Siyassi) arrested another five men on 9 September. They are being held incommunicado detention and are at risk of torture or ill-treatment. Amnesty International considers all five to be prisoners of conscience, arrested for their opinions and peaceful criticism of the government.
