Afghan President Ashraf Ghani has said the CIA’s brutal interrogation programme “violated all accepted norms of human rights in the world”.

He is among many world leaders condemning how the agency imprisoned and questioned al-Qaeda suspects.

A US Senate report on the programme has said the harsh methods did not lead to unique intelligence that foiled plots.

The report also concluded the agency misled politicians and public about the 2001-2007 programme.

The CIA has defended its actions in the years after the 9/11 attacks on the US, saying they saved lives.

And President Barack Obama has said it was now time to move on, despite acknowledging some of the CIA’s actions amounted to torture.
