"We fear that what we have heard from these two men is just one small part of the much broader picture of U.S. secret detentions around the world," said Sharon Critoph, a researcher at Amnesty International who interviewed the men in Yemen.
"These men were stripped of their dignity, at times beaten, spat on, deprived of sleep and threatened with sexual abuse and electric shocks," William F. Schulz, executive director of Amnesty International USA , said in a statement. "Their testimony will hopefully shed light on U.S. detention centers just as sinister, yet less well-known, than Guantanamo."
