Nigerian Torture Survivor Freed!
Dargham Mahdi al-Zaidi, a pro-reform activist aged around 30, was released on 3 July. He was apparently told that he must stop taking part in anti-government protests.
Seven men subjected to enforced disappearance since late 2007 are now known to have been released in March this year. They had been arrested by Chadian security forces on 30 November 2007, in the town of Guéréda, in the north-eastern region of Dar Tama.
