BBC Africa Eye‘s latest investigations explore the activities of “Sudan’s secret hit squads” described as “teams of plainclothes agents chasing down protesters, beating them, and dragging them off to secret detention centres in Khartoum.”

The documentary is a product of an analysis of dozens of dramatic videos filmed during the recent uprising, as well as interviews with witnesses who have survived torture at a holding facility – The Fridge.
