Rapper’s music centre of human rights claims

Eminem’s music has allegedly been used by the US to torture detainees.

The Human Rights Watch (HRW) have claimed that America operated a secret prison near Afghanistan last year and say that music by the rapper and Dr Dre was used to make inmates suffer.

According to Sky News, the group quote a prisoner who alleges that he was forced to listen to their music for 20 days whilst being kept in a pitch-black prison.

He then said the rap was replaced by “horrible ghost laughter and Halloween sounds.”

The HRW’s report also says that detainees were deprived of sleep, kept in the darkness for days and chained to walls in the so-called Dark Prison.

The US denies torturing suspects and the CIA have not commented. The HRW have now called for an enquiry.
