Iranian suspect in Kenya say Israeli agents tortured him in custody
Nairobi (Alshahid)-One of two Iranians charged in Kenyan court for being in possession of dangerous explosives have Wednesday told the judge that they were tortured by Israeli agents while in police custody.
The duo, Ahmad Abolfathi Mohammad and Sayed Mansour Mousavi were arrested last week with 15 kilograms of RDX explosives.
RDX is a powerful military-grade explosive.
Ahmad Abolfathi Mohammad told the court he was tortured in Kenyan custody. He said he went without food for long periods and that he was forced to sleep on a cement floor with only his jacket to keep him warm.
He said that they needed to be taken to hospital to seek medical attention.
Nairobi Senior Principal Magistrate Paul Biwott denied them bail and ordered that they be escorted to the Nairobi Hospital for treatment, but at their own cost.
