Khaled Abdu Ahmed Saleh al-Maqtari's story illustrates the global reach of the USA's secret detention network and provides chilling allegations of the deliberate and persistent use of torture and other ill-treatment. This 31-year-old Yemeni has never been charged with any crime yet spent nearly three years in US custody as a victim of enforced disappearance. He was transferred to Yemen in 2006 where he was finally released in May 2007, with a group of other prisoners, on the day celebrating the unification of north and south Yemen.
