 Red Cross Accuses Bush of Hiding Detainees

The international Red Cross said Tuesday that it fears US officials are holding terror suspects secretly in locations across the world, in possible violation of international law. The Geneva Convention provides the Red Cross with automatic access to prisoners of wars.

"We have access to people detained by the United States in Guantanamo Bay, Afghanistan and Iraq, but in our understanding there are people that are detained outside these places for which we haven't received notification or access," said Antonella Notari, a spokeswoman for the International Committee of the Red Cross.

Notari said suspects reported as arrested by the FBI on its Web site, or identified in media reports, are unaccounted for: "Some of these people who have been reported to be arrested never showed up in any of the places of detention run by the U.S. where we visit"

The Bush Administration has not officially responded to a Red Cross demand for notification of all detainees, including those held in undisclosed locations, she said.
