The European Court of Human Rights said on Thursday it had concluded that Lithuania and Romania hosted a CIA detention centres and allowed for Tortures.

Lithuania hosted this prison from February 2005 to March 2006 and that Abu Zubaydah had been held there. It said Romania had been home to a similar CIA prison between September 2003 and November 2005 where Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri was held.

The two prisoners were both taken in after the September 2001 attacks in the US and are now being held in Guantanamo Bay.

The court concluded authorities in both countries had cooperated and would have known the purpose of the centres.
