[JURIST] Cyrus Kar, the American filmmaker detained by US forces in Iraq in May and held for 54 days [JURIST report] after the taxi he was riding in was stopped at a checkpoint and found to be carrying timing devices that could be used to make bombs, described his ordeal to reporters in Baghdad Sunday after his release from US military custody [JURIST report]. The ACLU filed a lawsuit [ACLU materials] last Wednesday calling for his release. Calling his experience "bizarre", he said he had been held at Camp Cropper, the facility for high-value Iraqi detainees near Baghdad International Airport and had spent much of his time in solitary confinement in a cell block that also held former Saddam Hussein deputy Tariq Aziz. He said he had not been maltreated. The Los Angeles Times has more.
