Algeria: Fear for Safety/Intimidation

, Index number: MDE 28/013/2005

Amnesty International is concerned for the safety of families of the "disappeared" in Algeria, including Mehria Brahimi (f), Zohra Elouaer (f), Nassera Hadji (f), Louiza Saker (f), Akila Saou (f), and Aldjia Ziedi Chibane (f), following the forcible prevention by security forces of a peaceful demonstration in Constantine, eastern Algeria, on 22 September. It is also feared that forthcoming demonstrations by relatives of the "disappeared" on 28 and 29 September in different Algerian cities may be forcibly prevented by security forces, including through arrests, beatings and other forms of intimidation.
