Zumana Karamoko, 19, poses for a photograph on the porch of his family residence in Harlem, New York January 25, 2015. Karamoko says he was 16 years-old when he was incarcerated on Rikers Island in 2012 for armed robbery and two assaults. In an incident after a lockdown, Karamoko says an officer pulled him out of a class, escorted him into another room and started beating him. Karamoko says he attempted to fight back and was beaten by a group of officers and who then hit him with pepper-spray. "When the riot shield guys came, they all jumped me. And then they dragged me all the way to the intake. And I was leaking from my head," he said. Karamoko, who said he was charged and sentenced for assaulting an officer in the incident further states, "My experience at Rikers Island was crazy. The COs (correctional officers) treat inmates bad in there." Rikers, one of the largest jail complexes in the country which houses around 9,800 prisoners, came under scrutiny after the Justice Department in August 2014 issued a report that described a pattern of violent abuse of male inmates aged 16 to 18 by jail staff. In response to questions from Reuters, a spokesman for Rikers Island Department of Correction (DOC) said that, "Since Commissioner (Joseph) Ponte's appointment last year, he has significantly reformed the care and custody of adolescent inmates, resulting in substantial decline in violence in the adolescent facility." The spokesman added that safety for staff and inmates is Commissioner Ponte's "top priority" and that "DOC has a zero-tolerance police with regards to abuse."

Donte Walker, 21, poses for a photograph at a bus stop outside his residence in Poughkeepsie, New York, October 5, 2014. Walker says he was the age of 16 through 18 years-old when he was detained and served time on Rikers Island from 2010 to 2012 for assault, possession of firearm and armed robbery. After one altercation with another inmate, Walker says he was put in flexicuffs and punched "Mad hard, like real hard" in the face by a correctional officer. When asked if he reported the incident he said, "Cause who you report it to? You gonna report it to another CO (correctional officer) which he's cool with. He probably eats lunch with everyday. And he's gonna tell him and now they gonna whoop your ass even more."

Eric, 19, who did not want to share his full name, poses for a photograph in a playground outside his residence in the Bronx borough of New York, November 20, 2014. Eric says he was 17 years-old in 2012 when he was incarcerated on Rikers Island for committing "A crime which was illegal." During a search on the school grounds where inmates attend class, Eric says he was ordered to strip naked. When he refused, he says he "Got put in a headlock, officers started beating on me, punching me in my head, my body, kicking me, had me in fetal position, stomping on me." Directly after the incident Eric says the officers "put me in flexicuffs then they (pepper) spray." Eric say he was sent to solitary confinement after the incident because officers "Said I assaulted an officer and that was that." When describing his experience at Rikers, he says "Coming from the street to there just had me on guard. Being observant and just didn't want to become a victim, which I did. After that, it just made me be more aggressive and hostile."

The assault on Garissa University on April 2, in which gunmen from Somalia's al Shabaab group stormed in and sought to kill Christian students, has piled pressure on President Uhuru Kenyatta to do more to secure the border and other regions.

Israeli protesters, Jews of Ethiopian origin, participate in a protest on what they say was police violence against their community in Jerusalem April 30, 2015. The demonstration that began as a peaceful march near national police headquarters in East Jerusalem, grew violent as protesters advanced towards Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's official residence and gathered on a main road close by. The demonstration was called to protest police violence against members of the Ethiopian community after a video clip emerged this week showing two police officers assaulting an Ethiopian army conscript and arresting him. The word written on the poster in Hebrew read " Gestapo". REUTERS/Ronen Zvulun
