"The British government has trained a paramilitary force accused of hundreds of killings in Bangladesh, according to leaked U.S. embassy cables. The Guardian newspaper said the cables described training for members of the Rapid Action Battalion as being in 'investigative interviewing techniques' and 'rules of engagement.' ... the battalion has been accused by human rights activists of being a 'death squad' responsible for more than 1,000 extra-judicial killings since it was established in 2004."
