KUALA LUMPUR: A British Muslim detained for three years at the
controversial Guantanamo Bay prison manned by the United States,
revealed that the youngest detainee he knew of was a nine-year-old boy
who was also tortured like the rest.

Ruhal Ahmed’s story was among more accounts of atrocities committed
against the detainees at Guantanamo, told before an open commission
hearing which began Friday on the sidelines of an international
conference to criminalise war.

The testimonies before the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Commission Hearings
will be submitted to a tribunal in conjunction with the Criminalise
War Conference and War Crimes Tribunal 2009 spearheaded by former
Malaysian prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
