Western Sahara: Five Saharawi Activists Arrested By Moroccan Forces

Guelemim — Five Saharawi human rights activists have been arrested Friday evening in the town of Guelmim, in the south of Morocco, while on a visit to the family of Saharawi activist Mbarek Daoudi, incarcerated in the prison of Sale since November.

According to a media source from the occupied territories, Saharawi activists Sidi Mhamed Dedeche, Mustapha Addah, Mohamedi Dida, Cherif Karehi and Abdelhak Toubali, arrived Friday to Guelmim from Rabat, but haven not been allowed to attend the trial of Daoudi, postponed to a later date.

The five Saharawi activists have been arrested just after the visit they paid to the family of Daoudi, reported the same source.
