98 Detainee Deaths

Of the 98 deaths, at least 34 were suspected or confirmed homicides, the programme said.
The Pentagon told Newsnight it had not seen the report but took allegations of maltreatment "very seriously" and would prosecute if necessary.
The report, which is to be published on Wednesday, draws on information from Pentagon and other official US sources.
...It says another 11 cases have been deemed suspicious and that between eight and 12 prisoners were tortured to death.
