Many prisoners are believed to have died as a result of torture and other ill-treatment. The government refuses to confirm or deny these reports, leaving families unaware of the fate of their loved ones.

We think we know so much about what is happening in the world but the truth is we don't. We only know about that which our media, or our politicians, choose to focus us on. That things like this are going on, all over the world, is largely hidden from public view or knowledge. But the people in these smaller, out of the way, countries are no less important than those in the middle east or Europe or America or anywhere that is in the public eye. Amnesty International does great work in trying to protect ALL of the world, not just the parts of it that are deemed important by some. I support them and the morality behind their efforts, I wish more people everywhere did too. Will.

Noted and signed !! 100% agree with you Gene ..... I had no idea just how enormous this problem is. When journalists (for example) from our own countries are held captive, we hear about it on the news ..... but the rest, we hear nothing about. This really is a horrific discovery for me ..... thanks Teresa, for highlighing it for us !!

again and again we are fed only what governments want us to know. the situation in Eritrea gets no facetime because they have no natural resources beyond sheep and nutmeg.

Negative karma grinds it's teeth into the flesh, the muscle, spilling bloody clots of pain with not a trace of mercy. So few know the secret. Karma dangles a loop hole scorned by multitudes. Forgive and ye shall be forgiven. The Lord of Karma awaits an audience with the debtor who forgives.

"I'll NEVER forgive HER!" the debtor defies.

Kal sighs, his usual sigh, and prepares a cell.
