Amnesty Calls for Investigation into U.S. Links to Torture in Yemen

Monday 26th June / presented by Chris Butler

Following an Associated Press investigation alleging that United Arab Emirates and its allied Yemeni security forces are needlessly detaining and torturing detainees, who are also being interrogated by US forces in a network of secret prisons across Southern Yemen.

The United Arab Emirates is a key participant in the Saudi Arabia-led military coalition in Yemen.

It is known to provide military equipment, training and logistical support to Yemeni security forces in Aden and al-Mukalla that stand accused of serious violations of international law.

At the same time, the USA and western European states continue supplying substantial quantities of military equipment to the United Arab Emirates, which is one of the five largest arms importers in the world.

Amnesty International Crisis Campaign Coordinator Diana Sayed is with us to discuss the investigation.
