The Sudanese government has begun filing a defamation lawsuit against Amnesty International for a report on torture against political prisoners in the country, the justice minister said Wednesday. The London-based rights group said in statement last week that eight men arrested for allegedly plotting a coup were being held in a Khartoum prison "where they have been tortured and need immediate medical attention."
