Lawyers, families urge Pakistan to free Bagram detainees
By Maria Golovnina PESHAWAR, Pakistan (Reuters) - Family members and lawyers representing a group of Pakistani men released from a U.S. military prison but held by Pakistani authorities urged the government on Monday to free them or explain why they are still being kept behind bars. The six men were arrested by U.S. authorities in neighboring Afghanistan on suspicion of links to the Taliban but they were released on November 16 from the high-security Bagram prison there without charge. They were repatriated to their homeland and have since been held at a prison in Peshawar in northwestern Pakistan. "We don't know on what charges they are being held," Sarah Belal, one of the lawyers, said outside the sprawling Central Jail in Peshawar, a volatile and chaotic city on Pakistan's Afghan border.
