LONDON: The CIA tortured Al-Qaeda suspects “until the point of death” by drowning them in water-filled baths, Britain’s Daily Telegraph reported on Monday, ahead of the publication of a US Senate report on interrogation techniques.
The paper quoted one security source as saying the torture of at least two suspects, including the alleged mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, went far beyond the water boarding admitted by the Central Intelligence Agency.
“They weren’t just pouring water over their heads or over a cloth,” the paper quoted the source as saying. “They were holding them under water until the point of death, with a doctor present to make sure they did not go too far.”
A second source also spoke of the treatment meted out to Mohammed, who is in US military custody in Guantanamo Bay, as well as alleged USS Cole bomber Abd Al Rahim Al-Nashiri.
