.:Middle East Online:::. Sudan detains eight human rights activists


.:Middle East Online:::.: The eight -- six men and two women -- have been held at an office of the National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS) in the capital since May 22.

They include six staffers and a volunteer with TRACKS, a group providing training in human rights, and an official from Al-Zarqa, an organisation involved in human development.

Five of the six men are being held with 21 other detainees in one cell at the NISS prosecutor's office, while the sixth is being kept in a separate room because of health problems, Amnesty said.

The two women are "kept under guard in the reception area of the prosecutor's office during the day and sleep in one of the offices in the premises at night," it said.

"The eight have not been informed of the reasons for their arrest and have yet to be charged," the rights group said.
