Report, HRW: Torture of detainees renditioned Egypt
Today, HRW will release a report entitled Black Hole: The Fate of Islamists Rendered to Egypt. The report will examine renditions to Egypt (the practise of sending detainees to be interrogated in another country, particularly one where they will abused or tortured). It is estimated that 152 individuals have returned from rendition to Egypt since 11 September 2001. In the few cases where information is available, detainees have been severely mistreated and tortured. The report uses 5 of these as case studies. The report updates the cases of Agiza and al-Zery.
