Hell is Syria: 18-year old woman dies gruesome death in detention

According to Amnesty International, an 18-year-old woman was killed in a Syrian prison to pressure her brother, a political activist. Her body had been decapitated, the arms cut off, her skin removed.

"If it is confirmed that Zainab was in custody when she died, this would be one of the most disturbing cases of a death in detention we have seen so far," said Philip Luther, Amnesty's deputy director for the Middle East and North Africa.
