On November 2, The Washington Post first reported allegations that the United States was running secret prisons overseas.
Now, an investigation by a Swiss Senator, Dick Marty, has confirmed the existence of the secret prisons.
Marty's investigation found that the United States illegally held detainees in Europe, but rushed to ship the last detainees to North Africa once word of the secret prisons got out.
Some European officals have said the existence of these prisons would violate their continent's "human rights principles."
