Hunger striking Tamil political prisoners refuse medical treatment

Tamil political prisoners who have been hunger striking for 16 days have begun refusing medical treatment since Friday.

All ten detainees who have been protesting for their release were receiving treatment for around a week due to the severe decline in their health.

However all ten, including two detainees that were transferred from Magazine to Anuradhapura prison, decided to escalate their strike on Friday by also refusing medical treatment.
