"Britain has urged authorities in Zimbabwe to investigate a BBC report that its security forces are beating and raping prisoners at two camps in the Marange diamond fields in the east of the country. BBC News says that the camps hold workers recruited by the police and the military to dig illegally for diamonds for them but who then demand too large a share of the profits and are subsequently detained."
