Syria tortures detained protesters: Rights group
Beirut: A leading international rights group says Syrian security and intelligence agencies have detained and tortured hundreds of protesters since anti-regime rallies engulfed Syria last month.
Human Rights Watch urged Syrian authorities on Friday to immediately stop the use of torture and free all demonstrators, activists, and journalists in custody.
The New York-based HRW says hundreds have been arbitrarily detained and subjected to "torture and ill-treatment." It didn't provide a precise number.
