CIA faces investigation

A prosecutor will conduct a full criminal investigation into the CIA's handling of two prisoners who died in United States custody, but about 100 other cases of alleged mistreatment by the CIA were closed, Attorney General Eric Holder said yesterday.

Holder said he accepted the recommendations from Justice Department prosecutor John Durham, who has been conducting an inquiry into harsh CIA interrogation practices of terrorism suspects during George W. Bush's presidency.
