I feared they'd shoot me, Hicks said before gag

DAVID HICKS feared he would be shot if he did not co-operate with US interrogators, the Australian prisoner says in an affidavit for an English court case.

And his Australian lawyer says he was tortured during his time at Guantanamo Bay, contradicting Hicks's plea bargain statement, in which he said he had not been mistreated by the US.

Hicks, who has spent five years in the US military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, after he was sold To US By Northern Alliance in Afghanistan in late 2001, last week pleaded guilty to a charge of giving material support to terrorists.
