A Bahraini detainee said that he was tortured by U.S. guards during his detention in Afghanistan. The lawyers of a Bahraini detainee at Guantanamo Bay said that he was tortured and abused by U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan. Abdulla Majid Al Nuaimi was arrested in Pakistan in 2001 and transferred to Kandahar in Afghanistan and then to the U.S. naval base at Guanatanmo Bay, Cuba.
Al Nuaimi detailed the abuse accusations last October during an interview with his lawyers at Guanatanmo. The accusations were made public after the U.S. Defense Department reviewed the lawyer’s documents and ruled that the information isn’t classified. Al Nuaimi said that he was abused and tortured inside a large tent in the detention facility in Kandahar.
He told his lawyers that the prisoners were forced to kneel on the ground and that he heard the soldiers’ zippers being unzipped. “He then felt liquid on his head but he was unable to determine whether the soldiers had urinated on him or had pretended to do so,” the lawyers said”¦ ALSO SEE:
