As it turns out, al-Badawi received the equivalent of a cake with a metal file from Yemeni intelligence officers...
- ...guards have begun strapping recalcitrant detainees into "restraint chairs," sometimes for hours a day, to feed them through tubes and prevent them from deliberately vomiting afterward.
