The U.N. human rights office has called the force-feeding of prisoners at Guantánamo “torture” and a breach of international law. The detainees are force-fed through a feeding tube that many say is brutally painful.
“I will never forget the first time … As it was thrust in, it made me feel like throwing up. I wanted to vomit, but I couldn’t. There was agony in my chest, throat and stomach. I had never experienced such pain before,” detainee Samir Naji al Hasan Moqbel wrote.
