KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): US embassies in Afghanistaninfo-icon and Pakistaninfo-icon on Wednesday warned of potential anti-American protests and violence after the release of a Senate report on CIA’s brutal interrogation techniques.

On Tuesday, US Senate Intelligence Committee chairperson Senator Dianne Feinstein said at least 119 individuals were subjected to coercive interrogation techniques, in some cases amounting to torture.

“The release of declassified versions … on the CIA’s rendition, detention and interrogation program could prompt anti-US protests and violence against US interests, including private US citizens,” the embassies said.

Americans were asked to be alert to their surrounding and take appropriate safety precautions, including avoiding demonstrations or confrontational situations.
