ODD NEWS: Egyptian Prisons go on hunger strike

One may be wondering how a convict serving jail time will decided to willingly go hungry for days.

Some prisoners in Egypt have gone on hunger strike to do a protest in order to draw attention. More than 100 prisoners have been on hunger strike for a month and two weeks to draw attention to what they term as “cruel and inhumane detention conditions.”

The authorities have been called on by the international rights group to conduct an investigation on torture and other violence on prisoners.

According to Amnesty’s Middle East and North Africa Deputy Director, Magdalena Mughrabi;

“the combination of squalid and inhumane detention conditions and the denial of family visits and access to their lawyers… has created an unbearable situation for detainees.”

The prisoners are being kept at ‘Scorpion’ a very popular prison in Cairo, Egypt. The prison holds a lot of political personnel who have been imprisoned over the course of a sweeping crackdown on dissent for the past years.
