Murders, Not Suicides (Excerpt from ‘The VICE News Interview: Joseph Hickman’)

What really happened at the Guantanamo Bay detention facility on the night of June 9, 2006? According to the US government, three detainees — all imprisoned as part of the global war on terror — hung themselves in their cells that night. But Army Staff Sergeant Joseph Hickman, who was on guard that night at Camp Delta, came to believe something very different: that the three men were murdered in a secret CIA black site at Guantanamo. In this excerpt, Hickman lays out his case for why it would have been impossible for the three detainees to have killed themselves as the government claimed — and why they may have been targeted for death.

The Central African Republic Torn Apart (Trailer)

In 2013, a Muslim rebel group named the Seleka led a coup in the Central African Republic, overthrowing the Christian President Francois Bozize and bringing the country into an ethno-religious civil war. Later that year, VICE News traveled to the CAR to cover the conflict which has left over 5,000 dead and nearly a million displaced. Due to the combination of the upcoming February presidential election, the looming exit of French peacekeeping forces, and the total handover to the MINUSCA United Nations troops, the situation in the CAR is extremely fragile. With the conflict entering its third year, questions remain about how to quell the violence, which the UN describes as “The Silent Crisis.” VICE News returned to the CAR in 2014 to further document the ongoing conflict and to meet those living through the prevailing chaos.
