BBC: Doctors attack US over Guantanamo
BBC NEWS reports on a letter in the Lancet: "More than 250 medical experts have signed a letter condemning the US for force-feeding prisoners on hunger strike at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
The experts, from seven nations, said physicians at the prison had to respect inmates' right to refuse treatment.
The letter, in the medical journal The Lancet said doctors who used restraints and force-feeding should be punished by their professional bodies.
Some 500 terror suspects are being held without trial at Guantanamo Bay.
The US has argued that the Geneva Convention does not apply to prisoners at the camp, who, it says, are enemy combatants who continue to pose a threat to national security."
