UAE could be torturing detained activists, UN says

A group of activists detained in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) are enduring conditions that may amount to torture, a UN expert says.

UN Special Rapporteur Mary Lawlor says the five detainees are being held in solitary confinement for long periods and had their air conditioning switched off in temperatures above 40C.

She called for them to be immediately released after eight years in jail.

The Emirati authorities have not responded to the allegations.
