#BBCtrending: What are people chatting about near the CIA's secret prisons?

The Twitter hashtag #torturereport has taken off since the US Senate's long-awaited release on CIA interrogation techniques - but what are people near the secret prisons saying?

The hashtag has been used 200,000 times in the past day. The report acknowledged a number of countries where the CIA ran secret prisons. While specific location details were censored, campaigners and journalists have put together a list of some of the approximate locations.

We looked at the website trendsmap.com for a snapshot of what people are chatting about on Twitter in some of those places. Although this is far from a scientific survey - for one thing, not all Twitter users allow their tweets to be located on a map - this exercise does throw up something interesting.

What is striking is that, although #torturereport was one of the world's top 10 most discussed subjects on Twitter today, it's not for Twitter users located near the secret prisons.
