UPDATED JULY 9th: [this earlier report is not corroborated by one recent source that insists Diop has not been injured. We have not be able to confirm this recent update nor the initial report. We remain without any direct news of the IRA detained. All of the IRA members arrested are being held in secret locations, incommunicado, with no contact with families or lawyers. Inquiries at the police station are met with no response.]
We have received reports that at least two IRA members held in police custody are now in the hospital with serious injuries. One or both may be in a coma from head injuries.
We will up-date this when more information is available.
