Former Guantanamo detainee Saad Iqbal Madni's struggle

A former detainee at the US naval base in Guantanamo Bay says he is still fighting for his freedom, more than two years after his return home to Pakistan.

Islamic scholar Saad Iqbal Madni has been under tight security restrictions since his release from Guantanamo in 2008.

Madni claims he was detained in Indonesia in 2002 and transferred for torture in Egypt, Bagram Airbase in Afghanistan, and Guantanamo.

The CIA declined to comment on his claims, and the US defence department said torture has never been used in Guantanamo.

The BBC's Orla Guerin spoke to him in Lahore.

The full interview can be seen on BBC News Channel and World TV on Friday 25 and Saturday 26 February 2011.
