Nearly 2,000 dead in Syria jails this year: monitor

A remaining mortar round in a destroyed neighbourhood of the Old City of Homs on May 10, 2014Nearly 2,000 people have died in Syrian prisons of torture, starvation and lack of medical treatment so far this year, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Sunday. The Britain-based monitor said it had documented 1,917 deaths in Syrian prisons since the start of 2014, among them 27 children under the age of 18 and 11 women. Rights groups have regularly criticised conditions in Syrian detention facilities, accusing the regime of widespread torture and abuse. Earlier this year, 55,000 photos smuggled out of Syria by a former Syrian military police photographer gave a glimpse of some of the abuses being committed in Syrian jails.
