US could continue Afghan detention

US military authorities are expecting to retain control part of the existing Bagram prison to hold “security threats,” as well as prisoners who were arrested outside the country and flown into Afghanistan on rendition flights, according to the admiral in charge of overseeing US detention operations in the country.
