Yarl's Wood Update

At 4pm today around 30-40 guards came and took away all the men involved in the sit in protest, as well as two women, who were naked. There was a struggle as they pulled the men away from the women. In the struggle, one of the women’s child (aged 19 months) fell from her back and an officer stepped on the child. Her husband was dragged away injured and bleeding. The women are continuing with their hunger strike.
