Amnesty International: CIA planes carrying prisoners made 20 stopovers in Prague

Interior Minister Frantisek Bublan says he has no proof that CIA planes carrying war prisoners and suspected terrorists had made stopovers at Prague's Ruzyne Airport. According to human rights watchdog Amnesty International, the planes made a total of twenty stopovers in the Czech capital.
