Afghanistan: US hands over controversial Bagram jail

The US military has handed control of a controversial prison housing more than 3,000 Taliban fighters and terrorism suspects to the Afghan authorities.

In a small ceremony, Afghan officials said inmates had been transferred to their authority.

The move is part of a deal to transfer all Afghan prisons back to local control ahead of the withdrawal of Nato forces at the end of 2014.

Bagram prison has been at the centre of a number of prisoner abuse allegations.

Although Afghan President Hamid Karzai has hailed the planned handover, disagreements with the US remain.

Washington is insisting that it will maintain control over some detainees in the prison.
