American Executions?


Body of Afghan Torture Victim Found Near U.S. Base

The mangled corpse of an Afghan torture victim has been found near a U.S. military base in Afghanistan. The victim, Sayid Mohammad, was last seen being taken to the base for interrogation in November. His body was found with both feet cut off. Afghan officials are seeking the arrest of an Afghan-American interpreter on charges of murder and torture. The interpreter was reportedly identified in a video showing Mohammad’s abuse. Mohammad is one of 17 people who disappeared after reportedly being seized in Wardak province. The U.S. military says its soldiers were not involved in the abductions, but have not released the findings of an internal probe.
