Shibergan, Afghanistan-AP -- There's been plenty of criticism of the way the U-S is treating its captured Taliban and al-Qaida fighters.But some Taliban prisoners in northern Afghanistan are begging to be sent to a U-S prison.The Taliban fighters say they are living in squalid conditions. The prison where they're held in northern Afghanistan is jammed to ten times its capacity with about 35-hundred men.The warden says, "We are struggling."Doctors at the prison in Shibergan say medical supplies are critically low. They say nearly a third of the prisoners there are suffering from chronic dysentery and other gastric problems.And there's a growing fear of more sickness when the weather warms.A Pakistani prisoner in Shibergan says, "The United States should help us."

    Kabul, Afghanistan-AP -- Serious allegations are being leveled at U-S troops in Afghanistan.Published reports quote some Afghans as saying they were beaten by troops at the U-S base in Kandahar.The Afghans were among 27 captured north of Kandahar and held at the camp for 16 days before being freed last Thursday.In the words of an army spokesman -- "accusations of excessive force are not consistent with the humane treatment American forces are providing."Meanwhile, U-S troops hope forensic evidence will help them determine who was killed in an attack by a remote-controlled aircraft last week.U-S officials contend al-Qaida members were killed when the Predator drone fired a missile in Paktia province. But local residents say the victims were ordinary Afghans, not terrorists.
