Amnesty criticizes EU on human rights

Amnesty criticizes EU on human rights

Amnesty International says the EU isn't living up to its commitments on human rights, citing the bloc's tolerance of the CIA's rendition flights and secret detention program.
Amnesty says several European countries have repeatedly violated rulings by the European Court of Human Rights against the return of terror suspects to countries where they are at risk of torture.
The human rights group's report Thursday also noted "clear accountability gaps" in the EU's foreign policy.
It cited the bloc's "weak and incoherent" response to a U.N. report which found that Israel had committed war crimes in Gaza in 2009, and to similar allegations against government forces in Sri Lanka.
