Iran diplomat says was tortured in US custody

An Iranian diplomat who was detained by the US military in Iraq and held for more than two years, says that he was tortured while in American custody.

Majid Qaemi-Heydari was among the five Iranian diplomats who were abducted by American forces in a raid on Iran’s consulate in Arbil on January 11, 2007.

In an interview with Fars News Agency, Heydari said the behavior of his American captors was worse than the violence they showed against Iraqis.

“They had put covers on our heads, they cuffed our hands,” he said adding that the soldiers were later criticized for not cuffing the diplomat’s hands behind them.
