Description

The United States and other countries have secretly sent scores of Islamist detainees to Egypt since the mid-1990s, where they have likely been tortured, a human rights group said on Tuesday. Human Rights Watch issued a 53-page report criticizing Egypt as the world's main recipient of detainees, including suspected Islamist militants believed to offer useful intelligence for the U.S. war on terrorism.
