Afghanistan Analysts Network: US holds inmates in Bagram’s secret jail

< 1 min, 26 July 2013

The website quotes from an AAN dispatch about the US-run Black Jail at Bagram:

The Afghanistan Analysts Network says it has found that the U.S. is running a secret jail at Bagram Airbase in which Afghan inmates are being tortured.

In March 2013, the U.S. military said it handed over the control of Bagram detention facility – now called the Afghan National Detention Facility (ANDF), to the Afghan Ministry of Defense. The contents of this agreement between the two governments have never been published, although the Afghan officials say it is not classified.

But now interviews with detainees and Afghan officials have revealed that inmates are still being secretly taken, interrogated, and tortured by U.S. military forces on a secret site on Bagram Airbase known as Tor Jail meaning black prison.
