The Law Lords said the measures were incompatible with European human rights laws, but Home Secretary Charles Clarke said the men would remain in prison... Most of the men are being held indefinitely in Belmarsh prison, south London. ...The government opted out of part of the European Convention on Human Rights concerning the right to a fair trial in order to bring in anti-terrorism legislation in response to the 11 September attacks in the US. ...Lord Nicholls of Birkenhead, in his ruling, said: "Indefinite imprisonment without charge or trial is anathema in any country which observes the rule of law. ...the detention had driven four of the [11?] detainees to "madness", saying two were being held in Broadmoor hospital".
