An Angolan teenager imprisoned for two months without trial for insulting President Jose Eduardo dos Santos began a hunger strike to protest his treatment in detention. 17-year-old activist Manuel Baptista Chivonde Nito Alves was arrested for ordering t-shirts with slogans calling the president a "disgusting dictator". He was arrested in September and is reportedly charged with insulting the president. He could face a three-year prison sentence if convicted.
