Afghan Vice-President Dostum flies to Turkey amid torture claims

Afghan Vice-President Dostum flies to Turkey amid torture claims - BBC News

The vice-president is a former warlord with decades of experience in Afghanistan's turbulent political arena.
He is blamed for some of the worst atrocities in the country's long-running civil war, but joined its national unity government in 2014.
The allegations against him come from Ahmad Eshchi, a former ally, who says he suffered days of severe beatings and sexual abuse at Gen Dostum's command.
