The USA has again used its flawed “global war” theory to violate fundamental human rights principles, this time to carry out the abduction of Libyan national Nazih Abdul-Hamed al-Ruqai, also known as Abu Anas al-Libi, from Libya on 5 October 2013. The US government should immediately confirm his whereabouts and provide him access to legal counsel, medical care and family members.
