Military Denies Abuse

The military publicly denied allegations that its detention centers in Afghanistan left prisoners vulnerable to abuse.

Human rights groups have criticized the U.S. government of failing to hold personnel accountable for up to six deaths.

The government has confirmed that eight Afghans have died in detention since the fall of Taliban in late 2001.

But a Military spokesman in Afghanistan said a May inspection into the 22 U.S. detention centers in Afghanistan had found no signs of abuse.
