AI: CIA may have used Slovakia

THREE men who were recently released from Yemen may have been kept in a secret prison in an east European country.

According to a report by Amnesty International (AI), which obtained the information from the detained men, the prison may have been located in Slovakia, the SME daily wrote.

The three men - Muhammad Basmilah, Salah Quaru and Muhhamad al-Asad - spent 13 months in a secret American prison, likely in Eastern Europe. AI has tried to pinpoint the country based on the flight time and other details such as when the men prayed.
