The Russian newspaper Novaya gazeta has published more videos purportedly showing inmates at a notorious prison colony being tortured and abused by guards. The videos, published on July 17, add to previous ones obtained last year by the newspaper that also showed guards torturing inmates at Corrective Colony No. When the paper published the first batch last year, it caused an uproar among rights groups and civil society organizations, who said it was indicative of brutal conditions in Russian prisons.

The newspaper said that the new videos were provided by Public Verdict, a nongovernmental organization that assists victims of human rights abuses.

No one is as qualified to describe Israeli prison conditions as Palestinian prisoners, who experienced every form of physical and psychological torture , and have spent years, sometimes decades, fending for their humanity every hour of every day.
