The video, obtained by Cageprisoners shows the media conference following the ‘arrest’ of a woman and a teenager identified by Afghan police as Saliha and Ali Ihsan. The US allege that this is Aafia Siddiqui and her 12 year old son, Ahmad.
Aafia Siddiqui was extradited to the US on 4th August 2008 on charges of attempted murder and assault. She denies the charges and claims to have been held in US custody since her disappearance in March 2003.
Her son Ahmad remains in Afghan custody. The whereabouts of her two other children, missing for 5 years remain unknown.
