CIA 'tortured and sodomised' terror suspect, European court rules

CIA 'tortured and sodomised' terror suspect, European court rules --Landmark European court of human rights brands CIA treatment of wrongly detained Khaled el-Masri as torture 13 Dec 2012 CIA agents tortured a German citizen, sodomising, shackling, and beating him, as Macedonian state police looked on, the European court of human rights said in a historic judgment released on Thursday. In a unanimous ruling, it also found Macedonia guilty of torturing, abusing, and secretly imprisoning Khaled el-Masri, a German of Lebanese origin allegedly linked to terrorist organisations. Masri was seized in Macedonia in December 2003 and handed over to a CIA "rendition team" at Skopje airport and secretly flown to Afghanistan. It is the first time the court has described CIA treatment meted out to terror suspects as torture.
