More than 40 refugees at a detention facility in Drahonice in northwestern Bohemian have gone on hunger strike, the Czech News Agency said. Cleric Mikuláš Vymětal, who works with detainees at Drahonice, said the hunger strikers, almost all of whom are from Iran, had launched the protest over the fact they are being held in a prison facility and because of fears they will be deported to their country of origin. The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights recently criticised conditions at Czech detention camps.
