August 2nd, 2007

By Geezer Power

Have Pakistan’s security forces secretly detained hundreds of suspected terrorists? Reports are growing that the government is using the war on terror as an excuse for a general clampdown.

“We want our husbands and sons back”, laments one woman. Human Rights groups claim hundreds of people have been arrested and their detention officially denied. “The government has been using the war on terror as an excuse to suppress political opposition”. Relatives of the missing are now trying to use the courts to find out info about their loved ones.
