The week's news at a glance.
An Ethiopian-born British resident captured in Pakistan in 2002 claims that he was tortured in Morocco before being sent to Guantánamo Bay, the London Guardian reported this week. Benyam Mohammed, 26, is suspected of plotting to set off a dirty bomb in a U.S. city for al Qaida. He claims that the Americans transferred him to a Rabat prison, where over the course of two years, he was cut on the genitals, beaten, and subjected to loud music. The Guardian said Mohammeds account of when and where he was taken match records of flights by CIA-chartered planes. This is outsourcing of torture, plain and simple, said Mohammeds lawyer, Clive Smith. America knows torture is wrong, but gets others to do its unconscionable dirty work. U.S. officials declined comment.
