'CIA sleuths staged mock executions'


Quoting from a CIA report due to be released next week, the magazine said one detainee suspected of involvement in the bombing of a US warship was threatened with a gun and a power drill. Seventeen American sailors were killed in a suicide attack against the USS Cole when it was berthed in the Yemeni port of Aden on October 12, 2000.

The purpose of the threats made against the suspect, Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, was to scare him into giving information, Newsweek quoted a source who had seen the CIA report.

The report also said a mock execution was staged in a room next to another detainee, during which a gunshot was fired in an effort to make the suspect believe that another prisoner had been killed, Newsweek said.
