‘Bianet News Center’ reports that a human rights delegation visited the prison in Diyarbakir to monitor the situation of children held there. According to the prison manager there were 23 “political” detained and convicted children in prison, and 94 other children. Even though the group was allowed into the prison only two and a half months after their application, they reported serious neglect, lack of medical care and use of physical and psychological violence.
