The US has admitted for the first time that it has not given the Red Cross access to all detainees in its custody. The state department’s top legal adviser, John Bellinger, made the admission but gave no details about where such prisoners were held.
Correspondents say the revelation is likely to increase suspicion that the CIA has been operating secret prisons outside international oversight.
The issue has dogged Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice’s tour to Europe.
