Meanwhile, while we're all watching Zimbabwe...

Antony Hook had a good posting the other day in which he sets the problems in Zimbabwe in historical and political context in terms of human rights abuses and comes up with some good suggestions, but he rightly notes that other human rights abuses have dropped down the agenda.

In the interest of redressing the balance, here are some other human rights stories that you might have missed:
