Doctors Attack US Over Guantanamo
More than 250 medical experts have signed a letter condemning the US for force-feeding prisoners on hunger strike at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
The doctors said physicians at the military prison had to respect inmates’ right to refuse treatment.
The letter, in the medical journal, the Lancet, said doctors who used restraints and force-feeding should be punished by their professional bodies.
Some 500 terror suspects are being held without trial at Guantanamo Bay.Your support matters…
