In the run-up to Afghanistan’s President Ashraf Ghani’s visits to the US next week, this article looks at the situation of non-Afghan prisoners handed over by the US to Afghanistan with the end of the ISAF mission. AAN’s Kare Clark is quoted:

But inheriting Parwan prisoners has put the Afghan government in a dilemma, according to Kate Clark, the country director of the Afghanistan Analysts Network, an independent research organization that first reported the identities of the six men. “They have had these people dumped on them, and they are trying to find a legal solution,” she said, adding that Kabul was reluctant to simply free the men without reviewing their cases.
