Abstract:     
This article describes extraordinary rendition, the practice of seizing terror suspects and transporting them to third countries for detention and interrogation. The article examines this practice in light of several human rights instruments and demonstrates that extraordinary rendition violates international human rights and humanitarian law. The article is the first in a series of three articles by the co-authors to explore the practice of extraordinary rendition.
