'US running intl. network of secret detentions'

A United Nations report on the existence of secret detention facilities in countries around the world puts most of the blame on the US and its Central Intelligence Agency. The report says that the CIA, under the pretext of fighting terrorism, runs scores of secret prisons in foreign countries where suspected terrorists are held, a Deutsche Welle article read on Saturday. The UN report charges that the United States has created an "international network" to keep in detention anyone it deems as potential enemies. According to Deutsche Welle, the secret prisons exist in more than 66 countries. These countries include Algeria, Egypt, India, Russia, Sudan and Zimbabwe where suspects and dissidents are kept in secret facilities.
