US frees more Bagram detainees

Release comes as officials negotiate with governments to take non-Afghan detainees.



    The US military has freed two Afghan detainees from Bagram prison and given them certificates marking their release. The US has been releasing detainees for four months now ahead of the prison's transfer to Afghan control due at the end of this year.

    US officials say they are negotiating with foreign governments to take non-Afghan prisoners from the controversial prison, established after the US-led invasion in 2001.

    Two inmates were killed there while being interrogated in 2002, and other former inmates have claimed they were abused and tortured.
