, Index number: MDE 24/038/2004

The 12 named students were arrested by the security forces in the capital, Damascus, on 24 April. They are reportedly held incommunicado at the Department of Political Security in Damascus. Amnesty International is concerned that they may be tortured while held incommunicado, and considers them prisoners of conscience, held solely for their peaceful exercise of their right to freedom of expression and association.
