Europe's human rights body has passed a resolution accusing European states of colluding with the CIA on secret flights transferring terror suspects.

The Council of Europe says some countries were staging posts for illegal flights and others let the US abduct suspects from their soil.

The resolution passed by the Council of Europe reflects the conclusions of a seven-month inquiry by Swiss Senator Dick Marty, which studied air traffic logs, satellite images and personal testimonies.

The Council of Europe's 46 member states are obliged to respond.

EU Justice Commissioner Franco Frattini, invited to contribute to the Council of Europe debate, called on governments to follow up Mr Marty's investigation with their own inquiries.

"It is essential that the states concerned clarify the situation in their own countries in the light of the initial findings of the investigations carried out at European level," he said.

A video put together by human rights group Witness, including testimony from men who say they were tortured after being detained by the CIA, will be shown on the sidelines of the Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly (PACE) session.

You think Any of those EU members will actually respond?

I don't think so...

I bet they got a pretty sweet deal with CIA or NSA.
