On Oct 10, 2011, " UNAMA
" released a report which discloses
warcrimes and atrocities are being commited against suspected Taliban fighters accused of national security crimes such as: suicide attack
facilitators, producers of improvised explosive devices, and others implicated in crimes associated with the armed conflict in Afghanistan.
Detainees described experiencing torture in the form of suspension (being hung by the wrists from chains or other devices attached to the wall,
ceiling, iron bars or other fixtures for lengthy periods) and beatings, especially with rubber hoses, electric cables or wires or wooden sticks and
most frequently on the soles of the feet. Electric shock, twisting and wrenching of detainees’ genitals, stress positions including forced standing,
removal of toenails and threatened sexual abuse were among other forms of torture that detainees reported. Routine blindfolding and hooding and denial
of access to medical care in some facilities were also reported. UNAMA documented one death in ANP and NDS custody from torture in Kandahar in April
