REPORT: U.S. MILITARY HAS DETAINED MORE THAN 200 AFGHAN YOUTHS -
Democracy Now reports:
“In news from Afghanistan, the U.S. military has detained more than 200 teenagers at a prison near the Bagram Airfield, accusing them of being ‘enemy combatants.’
“The U.S. report submitted to the United Nations says young people, most of them about 16, have been detained for average stays of a year in order to ‘prevent a combatant from returning to the battlefield.’
“Some critics say the alleged combatants are as young as 11 or 12 years old. When the last report was submitted in 2008, just 10 young people were being held at the prison.
“Under the George W. Bush administration, thousands of young people were detained, almost all of them in Iraq.”
