    Report says up to 500 killed in Togo election violence

    According to this article, from Yahoo, a UN report has said that between 4-500 people were killed in Togo earlier this year:

    "The principal responsibility for the political violence and violations of human rights (lay with) the whole of the repressive state security forces," the report said, pointing fingers at police, the military police and the various branches of Togo's armed forces. "These groups coordinated with partisans of the ruling party," the report said, blasting the "impunity" with which the party in power conducted its coordinated strategy of repression. An estimated 2,500 soldiers dressed in civilian clothes and armed with knives, machetes and nail-headed clubs helped party militants repress opposition rallies, according to the report.
