This Open Society Foundations report provides the first detailed account of mistreatment at a classified U.S. screening facility in Afghanistan. Detainees state that they were held in excessively cold isolation cells; supplied inappropriate or inadequate food, bedding, and blanketing; denied exposure to natural light; unable to carry out their religious duties; restricted from exercise; and kept from meeting with the International Committee of the Red Cross.

Confinement Conditions at a U.S. Screening Facility on Bagram Air Base calls on the government to investigate detention standards at the facility and recommends immediate actions to reduce the likelihood of mistreatment, such as providing additional blankets and food to detainees.
