Cameroon security forces are subjecting suspected Boko Haram fighters to torture, and many others are dying from malnutrition and diseases, Amnesty International said Thursday.
The report revealed more than 1,000 Boko Haram suspects, many arrested arbitrarily, faced unhealthy conditions in overcrowded prisons. In Cameroon’s Maura Prison, some eight people died each month. The security forces subjected others to torture and extrajudicial killings, the report said.
