Did the CIA torture an Iranian diplomat? The Red Cross head in Tehran says he saw wounds on Jalal Sharafi’s body—and after the Bush administration’s defense of torture, anything is possible.
The head of the International Red Cross in Tehran says he saw wounds on an Iranian diplomat who has alleged that US forces in Iraq tortured him.
Peter Stoeker said there were marks on Jalal Sharafi’s feet, legs, back and nose but he was unable to say if they were the result of torture.
Iranian media quoted Mr Sharafi saying the CIA tortured him “day and night.”
