USA: ICRC’s reportedly documents abuse of detainees in CIA secret prisons

According to media statements, a new confidential report by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) documents how 14 “high value” CIA detainees were held and questioned under highly abusive conditions. Earlier this month, the Department of Defence’s Combatant Status Review Tribunals (CSRTs) started hearings to determine whether the 14 detainees qualify as “enemy combatants”. Two US Senators who attended the hearing, called for allegations of torture or ill-treatment of the detainees to be investigated.
