Three more Canadian generals will testify today at the hearings looking into whether Afghan detainees were tortured after being handed over by the Canadian military.
It's the story that's gripped Parliament Hill, and the nation, for more than a week now.
Yesterday, Brigadier General Jonathan Vance didn't testify, but he did say he's confident no detainees were tortured on his watch. He also said that on three separate occasions, he stopped prisoner transfers so that he could make sure they wouldn't be tortured.
Now though, the big fight at the committee is over whether former ambassador to Afghanistan, David Mulroney, will testify. He has said he'll show up this week - uninvited - to tell his side of the story. He has been accused of ignoring allegations of torture while he was in Afghanistan. Opposition MPs say they want to wait to hear from him until they have more of the relevant documents in front of them. The Prime Minister says they're just trying to muzzle Mulroney.
CBC reporters James Cudmore and James Fitz-Morris are all over it for us.
We've also got a who's who of everyone involved, and a timeline of the story.
