Devout Muslims are denied the opportunity to pray and forced to live in cells with the opposite sex. Victims are forced to eat excrement or eat from plates on which guards have urinated. Women prisoners are force to have sex with other prisoners and guards or are forced to stand naked in public while menstruating.
