The U.N. office for torture issues in Geneva said Wednesday it received a complaint from one of Pfc. Bradley Manning’s supporters alleging that conditions in a Marine Corps brig in Quantico, Va., amount to torture.
The U.N. could ask the United States to stop any violations it finds.
Manning supporters also are calling on the base commander to relax conditions that include confinement 23 hours a day in a one-person cell.
