From the AP—
Britain's government acknowledged Thursday that two terror suspects captured by U.K. troops in Iraq were later transferred by the United States to Afghanistan.
Defense Secretary John Hutton's admission contrasts with previous government assurances that there were no cases besides two that had been disclosed earlier.
Hutton says the two are still being held in Afghanistan and the U.S. has given assurances that they are held "in a humane, safe and secure environment."
