Detained supporters of Turkish coup are being ‘tortured’ and ‘raped’

Supporters of Turkey’s failed military coup have been tortured and raped in custody, Amnesty International has claimed.

The human rights group said it has ‘credible evidence’ of the abuse in Turkish detention centres, although the claims have been denied by a senior official.

Thousands of people taken into custody since Turkey’s attempted coup are being held in sports facilities and stables, where some have been beaten and mistreated, according to lawyers familiar with the cases.

Lawyers from the Ankara Bar Association’s human rights commission say members have reported the alleged abuses after trying to meet with clients. Other lawyers and human rights organizations have made similar allegations.

    It is just plain normal Islam doing what Islam has always done. People claiming to be shocked are beyond help.
