The Al Salami case

Patrice Mangin headed an international pathology team that volunteered to examine the body of Salah Addin Ali Ahmed Al-Salami, a Yemeni detained in the United States Guantanamo Bay detainment camps, who died on June 10, 2006. American authorities said Al Salami and two Saudi men committed suicide by hanging themselves. Mangin reassured family members that it was routine for the American medical team to have removed some organs that decay rapidly, such as the brain, heart and liver. But he said that the Americans had retained the organs of Ahmed's throat: the larynx, hyoid bone and thyroid gland, which he needed to examine to determine whether Al Salami died by hanging.
