Warning: Some readers may find the content of this video distressing

CCTV footage has emerged from Nigrita Prison in northern Greece where Albanian inmate Ilie Kareli was tortured to death.

The video, which went up on Kathimerini's website on Thursday, shows Kareli being escorted by guards after arriving at the prison and then being led to his cell, apparently bruised and half-undressed. Kareli died a few hours later as a result of chest injury.

The video also contains stills of Kareli bearing visible signs of abuse on his face, back and arms.

Seven guards from the facility were given extra time on Wednesday to prepare their defense on charges of torturing Kareli to death, a day after seven of their colleagues were remanded in custody in connection with the same affair.
