A group of U.N. human rights investigators says it wants to investigate reports of torture at the U.S. prison facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, where detainees are being held. But the team is reporting that the United States is ignoring their requests.

Also, information about the detainees is being improperly disseminated, according to a report in the New England Journal of Medicine.
