    Russian forces occupying Ukraine have tortured civilians with electric shocks, beat them with baseball bats, and kneecapped prisoners as part of a terror campaign across Ukraine's coast.

    Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny has been sent to a dreaded 'torture' prison notorious for sexual violence and brutal beatings, it has been claimed. The Putin foe had gone 'missing' from his previous jail but today it was claimed he had been moved to the strict regime maximum security penal colony at Melekhovo. The move to the jail hell is linked to the start of a new nine year sentence seen as politically motivated by the Russian opposition and the West.

    In 2004, with the Taliban making gains against international forces in Afghanistan, Washington's leaders made a fundamental shift in policy - putting the Pentagon in charge of overseeing the nation's new police forces. The result was a disastrous 'militarization' of the Afghan police, with brutal warlords put in charge of security and ensuring they received millions of dollars in U.S. funding despite human rights abuses, according to a damning new report. Among them was Abdul Raziq, celebrated by American commanders for bringing security to the Taliban-hotbed of Kandahar, even as he and his men were accused of murder and torture. The report describes how the U.S. focus on counter-terrorism meant that the Afghan police was pressed into service fighting the Taliban and al-Qaeda rather than tackling crime. 'The result of this policy shift was that the Afghan police force became increasingly militarized, and its focus became fighting insurgents rather than arresting the common criminals and gangsters — many of whom were members of or closely affiliated with the Afghan government — who threatened the everyday lives of Afghan citizens,' writes John...

    A German court on Tuesday sentenced a former Islamic State follower to life behind bars for the brutal 2015 killing of a young Yazidi girl who was chained up and left to die slowly in the scorching hot sun. The man, a 29-year-old Iraqi citizen identified only as Taha Al-J, was found guilty of genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity for his role in the terror group’s slaughter of the Yazidi religious community in northern Iraq. According to Agence France-Presse, he passed out in the courtroom after the verdict came down. The trial in Frankfurt marks the first genocide conviction in the world against a former member of the group for their attack on the Yazidis, a brutal campaign that began in 2014 and the United Nations said involved “killings, sexual slavery, enslavement, torture, forcible displacement, the transfer of children and measures intended to prohibit the birth of Yazidi children.” Thousands of Yazidi women and children were enslaved and subjected to brutal rapes and beatings on a daily basis; thousands of men and boys also remain missing. ...
    THE people of Myanmar have previously told of their torturous existence after the military takeover - but that barely touches the surface for those trapped in the country's jails. Prisoners are sadistically beat with cement-filled sticks, forced to hop like frogs for hours on end and deprived of sleep, food and water. 5Prisoners live in overcrowded and unsanitary jails in MyanmarCredit: AP 5Photos show the shocking injuries of a prisoner who says he was tortured during interrogationCredit: AP 5The military are said to expertly cover up the torture they inflict on prisoners The disturbing reality of life behind bars exposes the isatiable nature of the military's thirst for blood - forcing them to convert community halls and a royal palace into interrogation centers to accommodate the number of inmates. From 16-year-old girls to ageing monks, the revised legal system pulls no punches and has saw human rights fly out of the window. Political prisoners fill up most of the cells and detention centres, as part of the military crackdown on opposers of their February coup. A harrowing investigation by...
    VILE executions, brutal torture, forced sterilisation, cannibalism and concentration camps - these are just some of the horrors allegedly by the Chinese Communist Party.

    Iranian political prisoners who were interrogated, tortured and sentenced to die by Ebrahim Raisi have told of their horrifying experiences as Iran prepares to make him the country's next president. Farideh Goudarzi, who was jailed for being part of a banned political group, told MailOnline how Raisi watched guards drop her baby on the floor as part of one brutal interrogation - after she was tortured while pregnant and forced to give birth in jail.   Meanwhile Mahmoud Royaee, another political prisoner interrogated by Raisi during the execution of up to 30,000 opposition activists in a 1988 purge, said Raisi once handed down a death sentence to an inmate who was in the midst of an epileptic fit. On Friday, the 60-year-old hardliner is expected to be named Iran's next president following an 'election' that saw moderate candidates purged from voting lists. Both Goudarzi and Royaee said Raisi's appointment is intended to send a message to Iranians - following a series of large protests in recent years - that dissent will no longer be tolerated. 'Raisi is being brought to power to massacre these people,' Goudarzi...
    Dissident journalist Roman Protasevich has almost certainly been tortured after his Ryanair flight was hijacked over Belarusian airspace on Sunday. The 26-year-old's own coverage of last year's brutal crackdown by Europe's last dictator, Alexander Lukashenko, is an insight into the hell that awaits him.  It was his news channel which inspired hundreds of thousands to rally in the streets against Lukashenko - many were beaten and dragged into police vans on the mere suspicion that they had attended these demonstrations.  Mr Protasevich's fearless coverage while editor at Nexta alerted the world to the merciless beatings being meted out in Lukashenko's torture chambers.  Captives received broken bones, smashed teeth, skin lesions, electrical burns, brain traumas and kidney damage.   Police in balaclavas would hold people for three sleep-deprived days, during which time they suffered electrocutions, stress positions and starvation as guards forced them to sign confessions.  The ruthlessness was such that video captured by a witness recorded victims' screams echoing from prison walls in Minsk at night.  United Nations experts have recorded no less than 450 cases of torture up to September and ten...
    PARIS (AP) — President Emmanuel Macron has met with four grandchildren of an Algerian independence fighter to tell them that Ali Boumendjel had been tortured and killed by French soldiers in 1957. It was a further step in Macron’s efforts to reconcile France with its colonial past while offering an outstretched hand to Algeria, which France occupied for 132 years. In a statement late Tuesday, the presidential Elysee Palace said Macron wants to give families of the disappeared on both sides of the Mediterranean “the means to learn the truth.” Macron is the first French president born after the end of Algeria’s brutal seven-year war of independence in 1962, and had promised to reckon with colonial-era wrongs and, put an end to the two countries’ still rancorous relationship. Algeria held a special place among France’s colonial conquests, becoming part-and-parcel of France like other French regions. While Algerians make up a large portion of immigrants in France, the North African country harbors enmity from the years of colonization that culminated in the war, its brutal secrets locked in archives that...
