UN report on secret prisons implicates US, others

A group of U.N. human rights experts has published a report on secret detention centers detailing how the United States, China, Russia and others have used them in the fight against terrorism.
The 226-page report by U.N. experts on torture, counter-terorism, arbitrary detention and forced disappearances will be presented to the global body's Human Rights Council in March.
It covers recent use of secret prisons in what has been called the "war on terror" as well as their use in anti-communist and counterinsurgency operations since the 1940s.
The study, published online Tuesday, contains details of interviews with prisoners allegedly held in secret prisons and replies to questionnaires from some 44 countries.
