A U.S. report, based on interviews with former detainees, says Afghan prisoners were abused at a secret military detention centre in Afghanistan. The facility dubbed the ‘Black Jail’ is thought to be located at Bagram airbase. Former inmates’ claim they were subjected to strip searches, sleep deprivation and a lack of food.
