In this picture dated Friday, April. 19, 2013 and released by Amnesty International, people look at bodies of civilians detained by Nigerian security forces as alleged members or associates of Boko haram terrorist network deposited by soldiers outside Sani Abacha Teaching Hospital morgue in Damaturu. Hundreds of people are dying in military detention as Nigeria's security forces crack down on an Islamic uprising in the northeast, Amnesty International said Tuesday. Some people are shot outright, some starve and others suffocate to death, it said."Others were reportedly shot in the leg during interrogations, provided no medical care and left to bleed to death," the London-based human rights group said in a new report that includes testimony from freed detainees. More than 950 people died in military custody in the first six months of this year, according to "credible information" from a senior Nigerian army officer, it said. If true, that would mean that Nigeria's military has killed more civilians than the extremists during the first half of 2013. (AP Photo/Amnesty International) less
