Press TV (Iran), 14 April 2014

The website of this Iranian TV channel reports the case of a Pakistani truck driver and former Bagram prison inmate who alleges that he has been tortured there while the facility was still under US control. For background, the report adds:

"In July 2013, the Afghanistan Analysts Network (AAN), an independent non-profit research organization, said it has found that the US is running a secret jail at Bagram Airbase, in which Afghan inmates are being tortured.

Former detainees have told AAN that even after the handover of prison to Afghan forces, the US military has kept its authority to access detainees for interrogation."
