Spain court mulls US torture case
Some inmates were subjected to controversial interrogation techniques
Spanish judges have agreed to consider charging six former US officials with providing legal justification for alleged torture at Guantanamo Bay. Human rights lawyers brought the case against the six, who all served under former President George W. Bush.
Among those named was former defence official Douglas Feith, who said the charges against him "made no sense".
Spanish courts can prosecute offences such as torture or war crimes even if they occurred in other countries.
The former officials – who include ex-Attorney-General Alberto Gonzalez – could face arrest on leaving the US if the courts decide to issue warrants.
UPDATE: Spanish courts have declined to persue this case.
