Guantanamo Bay inmates ‘tortured’

`Treatment of detainees at Guantanamo Bay constitutes torture in some cases and violates international law, a leaked UN draft report says.

The document, seen by the Los Angeles Times, suggests that investigators will recommend the prison camp is shut down.

It also questions the legal status of the camp and the classification of detainees as enemy combatants.

US state department spokesman Sean McCormack criticised the draft report as “hearsay”.’
