Human Rights Concerns
Jean-Paul Noel Abdi, the president of the Djiboutian League of Human Rights (la Ligue djiboutienne des droits humains, LDDH), had been arrested after he investigated and reported on arrests following recent student protests in the Republic of Djibouti, in the Horn of Africa. He was granted provisional liberty on February 21, 2011 on health grounds. He remains charged with participation in an insurrectional movement.
