This may be true:
Tiny solitary cells under constant illumination, a mere 20 minutes of fresh air daily, and beatings at the hands of guards are indicative of the "torture" endured by some of the 17 people accused of plotting terrorist attacks in Canada, lawyers for the group said Monday.
And it may not. It's quite remarkable, though, how these jihadist prisoners, no matter the charges against them, no matter the country or state of incarceration, always claim torture. It's especially remarkable when one considers that these incidents take place in jurisdictions — such as, say, Canada — not normally known for maltreating prisoners. It's also interesting that the word always gets to the press with such speed.
