FD Editor’s Note: (sigh) “US to transfer Bagram prison to full Afghan control.” Wh…. again? I’m beginning to feel like “Ground Hog Day.” Or perhaps it’s just the “Twilight Zone“. Anyway, let’s see if this “soon” is sooner than the last one.
Control over the American-built Bagram Prison will be fully transferred to Afghanistan soon, local media said Saturday.
The transfer of the prison at Bagram Air Base is a condition to sign a security agreement with Afghanistan.
Some 600 prisoners are still held by American officials at their part of the prison.
A recent United Nations report exposed abuse and torture of detainees in Afghan prisons and intelligence facilities.
