Yemen: Further information on Incommunicado detention/Fear of torture/Medical concern

, Index number: MDE 31/014/2007

Brigadier Nasser al-Nouba, Shallal Ali Shaya' and scores of others arrested after a protest on 2 August, have been released by the Yemeni authorities. However, 'Abbas al-'Assal and Nasser al-'Awlaqi, detained at the same time, are still reported to be held incommunicado. Amnesty International is concerned that they may be prisoners of conscience, held solely for peacefully exercising their rights to freedom of expression and freedom of assembly.
