U.S. moves prisoners from Afghan prison to Pakistan, Yemen

Nine prisoners were sent to Pakistan last week from the Parwan detention center, located on a military base near Kabul, said Lieutenant Colonel Myles Caggins III, a U.S. military spokesman.

Another two prisoners were sent to Yemen this week, Caggins added.
