Kabul: The United States on Wednesday released the final three detainees from the Parwan Detention Center in Afghanistan, ending the US operation of any prisons in the country after more than a decade of war reports the Telegraph. Two of the detainees, including Redha al-Najar, a former bodyguard of Osama Bin Laden were transferred to Afghan custody for possible prosecution, while the third a Jordanian citizen wasn't considered a threat and is seeking resettlement in another country was handed over to International Red Cross.
Redha-al-Najar was the subject of "enhanced interrogation" techniques by the CIA, according to the newly released US Senate Intelligence Committee report. The report said al-Najar, a former bodyguard of Osama Bin Laden, was held at the so-called CIA salt pit in Afghanistan where his interrogation included "isolation in total darkness; lowering the quality of his food; keeping him at an uncomfortable (cold) temperature, playing music 24 hours a day and keeping him shackled and hooded."
