The French newspaper Le Monde has a news story and a couple of accompanying maps (English translation) about the transport and detention of possible terror suspects in Europe. One map entitled “Les prisons et les vols secrets et de la CIA” (Secret Prisons and Flights of the CIA) shows the number of CIA flights to various European countries and the host countries of suspected CIA detention centres. Another, smaller map entitled “Les vols secrets de la CIA en Europe” (Secret Flights of the CIA in Europe) depicts countries that were stopovers, flown over or destinations of CIA flights. The information is based on that collected by Human Rights Watch which drew on information supplied by keen and avid planespotters—people who photograph and track aircraft as a hobby and post the findings on various websites—among other sources.
