Europe Rights Court to Hear of Secret CIA Prisons

STRASBOURG, France — The secret network of black-site prisons across Europe that the CIA used to interrogate terror suspects is getting a rare public hearing at Europe's human rights court.

Editor's Note: Domestic Pressure Drove Rouhani to Make Deal With West

Lawyers for two terror suspects now imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay accuse Poland of various human rights abuses in connection with its role in what they say is their torture at a remote Polish prison.

Tuesday's hearing marks the first time Europe's role in the CIA's "extraordinary rendition" of terror suspects reaches Europe's human rights court.

One case concerns 48-year-old Saudi national Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, who faces U.S. terror charges for allegedly orchestrating the al-Qaida attack on the USS Cole in 2000 that killed 17 sailors.

The second case involves 42-year-old Abu Zubaydah, a Palestinian terror suspect.
