    The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said that since August 2009 US authorities have been notifying it of names of detained people in a separate structure at Bagram.

    "The ICRC is being notified by the US authorities of detained people within 14 days of their arrest," a Red Cross spokesman said.

    "This has been routine practice since August 2009 and is a development welcomed by the ICRC."

    "We are being notified about persons at the Bagram Theatre Internment Facility [now Detention Facility in Parwan] since Feb 2008," the ICRC spokesman added.
