Prisoners 'sold to' Guantanamo Bay for $5,000 each

Amnesty International says that a majority of US prisoners in Guantanamo Bay 
were captured on a $5,000 reward.

The nongovernmental organization said Friday that more than 85 detainees at the 
Cuba prison were captured by the Afghan Northern Alliance and in Pakistan when 
the cash rewards were offered for every unidentified terror suspect handed over 
to US custody.

Amnesty said that Pakistani courts have refused to offer protection for hundreds
of the country's citizens who were taken prisoner in mass arrests and "sold" to 
the United States as terrorists with only the word of the captors as proof. The 
prisoners were taken to Guantanamo Bay, Bagram Airbase, and secret US-run 
prisons around the world, the organization charged.

About 300 detainees have been released from Guantanamo Bay with no charges 
brought against them and many prisoners remain unaccounted for, Amnesty said, 
leaving them in danger of rendition and torture.

The organization said that a conference will be held September 29 to 30 to 
discuss Pakistan's "abuses" during the war on terror.
