Former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark has said that Dr. Aafia Siddiqui is innocent and has been victimized by the international politics for power. “Dr Aafia Siddiqui was victimized by the international politics being played for power. I haven’t witnessed such bare injustice in my entire career,” the Daily Times quoted Clark, as saying.
“Neither did Dr Aafia kill anyone, nor did she attempt it. In fact she was shot thrice and should be released immediately,” he said, adding that relations between Pakistan and the U.S. could be strengthened through repatriation of Dr Aafia.

(Reuters) – A United Nations human rights body accused Israeli forces on Thursday of mistreating Palestinian children, including by torturing those in custody and using others as human shields.
Palestinian children in the Gaza and the West Bank, captured by Israel in the 1967 war, are routinely denied registration of their birth and access to health care, decent schools and clean water, the U.N. Committee on the Rights of the Child said.
“Palestinian children arrested by (Israeli) military and police are systematically subject to degrading treatment, and often to acts of torture, are interrogated in Hebrew, a language they did not understand, and sign confessions in Hebrew in order to be released,” it said in a report.
US President Barack Obama made a rare acknowledgment during a Friday press briefing concerning the United States’ past use of enhanced interrogation tactics in the wake of the September 11 terrorist attacks.
