Abu Zubaydah expected to testify about conditions at Guantánamo’s highest-security camp, ahead of the delayed start of trial of alleged 9/11 masterminds

The Guantánamo detainee known as Abu Zubaydah, who was subjected to prolonged torture at CIA black sites, is expected to give testimony for the first time on Wednesday at a pre-trial hearing convened under the military commission system.

The hearing is the precursor to a long-delayed military trial at which five Guantánamo prisoners on war crimes charges related to the 9/11 attacks face the death penalty.
