Ten prisoners in eastern Turkey on hunger strike, health worsening: lawyers


The health of 10 women prisoners in Turkey has deteriorated since they went on hunger strike to protest against a new security measure, a lawyers’ association in the southeastern province of Diyarbakir said on Saturday. Six women in a jail in the eastern province of Elazig went on hunger strike on Nov. 10, to protest against a rule obliging them to wear an ID while outside their living quarters, the Bar association said. The Diyarbakir Bar said the prisoners were losing weight and starting to have serious health problems.
