Splash Damage from Abu Ghraib - More Torture Accusations, this Time from Australian Citizens

US tortured second Australian - Anti-Terror Watch - www.smh.com.au

The Australian Government "aided and abetted" the torture of Sydney man Mamdouh Habib after he was sent to Egypt with the complicity of Australian officials and given electric shocks, beaten and interrogated at gunpoint, his lawyer claims.

The new allegations also outline how Mr Habib was later beaten, dragged by chains attached to his feet and humiliated at Guantanamo Bay by US troops.

Accounts of savage, repeated and prolonged beatings of the other Australian held in Guantanamo Bay, Taliban fighter David Hicks, were revealed yesterday.
