Turkish Guantanamo detainee claims abuse

[JURIST] A lawyer representing a German-born Turk held at the US terror suspect detention camp at Guanatanamo Bay claimed Wednesday that his client had been subjected to torture, physical abuse and sexual humilation by interrogators. Murat Kurnaz [Amnesty International case sheet], 22, is said to have been captured in Pakistan after travelling there in October 2001. His lawyer denied allegations that he was associated with al Qaeda or the Taliban, and insisted that the US and German governments knew this. Kurnaz's parents have been working to obtain his release [ACLU Guantanamo families profile]. AP has more.
