Soldier tortured to death in South Kordofan

July 22 - 2019 DELLING

One of seven soldiers, who were arrested and taken to Delling garrison in South Kordofan, has died after alleged torture.

The soldiers were arrested in connection with the disappearance of a machinegun in El Dabkar two weeks ago. They were reportedly subjected to brutal torture by military intelligence officers, which caused the death of Ahmed Sharafeldin on Saturday.

Relatives of the deceased said that their son’s dead body appeared to show the effects of fire on various body parts. The other six accused are still being held in prison in Delling.
