Former Guantanamo inmate describes interrogations
By Peter Lloyd, ABC
A Bangladeshi man held for five years at Guantanamo Bay says guards desecrated the Koran during interrogations, claims that echo allegations made by other former detainees.
Mubarak Hussan bin Abul Hasin was arrested in Pakistan after the September 11, 2001 attacks on the US and then flown by the US military to Guantanamo Bay.
The son of a Muslim cleric, Mr Mubarak said he had gone to the city of Peshawar to study at a Madrassa.
During his confinement, he claimed guards kicked the Koran and threw it in the toilet.
Mr Mubarak also said he received electric shocks, was deprived of food and subjected to cold temperatures.
US authorities set him free after finding no evidence he had links to Islamic militants.
