, Index number: MDE 28/006/2006

M’hamed Benyamina and Mourad Ikhlef were arrested on 2 and 3 April 2006 by officers of the Department of Information and Security (Département du renseignement et de la sécurité, DRS), an internal intelligence agency. They are held at an undisclosed location in the capital, Algiers, and are at risk of torture or other ill-treatment. Both men had previously been detained for alleged "terrorist" offences and released in March.
