Swimming Pool in the Hotel Gran Meliá Victoria, Palma de Mallorca. The rendition team and flight crew from N313P relaxed here in January 2004 after the transfer of Binyam Mohamed from Morocco to Afghanistan and of Khaled el-Masri from Macedonia to Afghanistan. Hotel records obtained in teh course of a Spanish police inquiry showed that they ordered shrimp coctails and several bottle of fine wine. They were travelling under aliases, but the fact that they made telephone calls home from the hotel made it possible for reporters to trace them.
