From Swazi Media Commentary Thu Jan 31 2013, 08:56:00

Ten Swaziland police officers threw a woman into a kombi, drove her to a forest and tortured her for six hours. One woman police officer kicked her in the private parts.

This is the latest in a string of torture cases involving the Swazi police.

'I explained to them that I did not know where he was and this seemed to irk them and they got violent,' the woman said.
