Incident: Mohammed Karim Shirullah detained

This month, according to a statement on the ACLU website, Mohammed Karim Shirullah will be detained at various facilities in Afghanistan including Bagram. He will be kept for six months. He claims that during this time, he was:
  • severely beaten, to the extent that his right eardrum ruptured;
  • denied medical treatment for the aforementioned ruptured eardrum, resulting in his deafness in the right ear;
  • forced to maintain painful and contorted positions;
  • subjected to sensory deprivation and isolation;
  • stripped naked and photographed;
  • anally probed;
  • stripped and doused in water during interrogations;
  • forced to use an open toilet;
Shirullah is now deaf in his right ear, experiences painful swelling in his legs, and cannot sleep without medication.
