German ministers 'knew about CIA torture cells'

Independent Online Edition > Europe:

The German government is alleged to have received first-hand evidence that the CIA began torturing terrorist suspects at secret prisons in Europe shortly after the September 11 attacks, despite claiming it only knew about such sites through the media.

Stern magazine quoted a leaked German intelligence report yesterday which said that only weeks after September 11 2001, two agents and a translator visited a US military prison at the American 'Eagle Base' in the Bosnian town of Tuzla, where they saw a torture victim.
