Algeria: Stop destroying evidence

, Index number: MDE 28/006/2004

Amnesty International is concerned about shocking reports of attempts in Algeria to conceal or destroy evidence of human rights abuses. According to these reports, human remains were secretly exhumed in January this year from a mass grave site in the western province of Relizane. The site had been discovered in November 2003 by a local human rights activist who also collected evidence indicating that it contained the remains of civilians abducted and killed by local state-armed militias.
