They argue that they will be tortured if returned to their country of origin. For the second time this year, three of the men held have gone on hunger strike to protest their conditions of detention. Mohamed Mahjoub, Hassan Almrei and Mahmoud Jaballah are being detained at in the new Kingston Immigration Holding Centre (KIHC).
