Day 3: Ex-detainees allege that U.S. troops abused Quran

Former Guantanamo detainees told McClatchy that American soldiers and interrogators mistreated the Quran in detention facilities at Bagram Air Base, Kandahar Airfield and Guantanamo. The stories of mistreatment of the Quran at Guantanamo were repeated and exaggerated so many times by detainees or militants looking to stir up trouble in the cellblocks, however, that it was impossible to pinpoint the truth.
