The UN has formally rejected a US invitation to visit the Guantanamo prison camp, saying it cannot accept the restrictions imposed by Washington.
UN human rights experts said the US had refused to grant them the right to speak to detainees in private. UN senior official Manfred Nowak said private interviews were a “totally non-negotiable pre-condition” for conducting the visit.
Some 500 terror suspects are being held at the US military camp.
Mr Nowak, the UN’s special rapporteur on torture, told the BBC his team would accept nothing less than unfettered access.
