A lot of them have TB, they are being kept in the open air near mosquito-attracting arc lamps in a malaria infested swamp, need I say more? The Taliban treated the western journalist Yvonne Ridley humanely enough and she was arrested for spying rather than as a prisoner of war.

US army sources are quoted in todays paper as describing bad treatment of their prisoners as "a perk of the job".

Strangely, very little about the protests of Amnesty, Red Cross etc. has been reported in the US media.
