Torture "widespread" under U.S. custody: Amnesty - Yahoo! News

Torture "widespread" under U.S. custody: Amnesty - Yahoo! News:
"GENEVA (Reuters) - Torture and inhumane treatment are 'widespread' in U.S.-run detention centers in Afghanistan, Iraq, Cuba and elsewhere despite Washington's denials, Amnesty International said on Wednesday.

In a report for the United Nations' Committee against Torture, the London-based human rights group also alleged abuses within the U.S. domestic law enforcement system, including use of excessive force by police and degrading conditions of isolation for inmates in high security prisons."
