Washington (AP) A human rights group says former detainees are suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder that can be traced to time in U.S. Military jails in Iraq and Guantanamo.

Physicians for Human Rights also says some of the 11 former prisoners they examined have lingering physical injuries and scars from their imprisonment.

It accuses U.S. Military health professionals of allowing the abuse of detainees, denying medical care and giving interrogators information they could exploit.

The report came as the senate armed services committee revealed documents showing military lawyers warned the pentagon against using aggressive methods.
