CIA threat to kill suspect's children; world newsbulletin.

INTERROGATORS threatened to kill the children of a September 11 suspect, a newly-declassified CIA report said yesterday.

The document, released by the US Justice Department, revealed that one interrogator said a colleague told Khalid Sheikh Mohammed that if any other attacks happened in the United States, "we're going to kill your children".

Another interrogator allegedly tried to convince a different terror suspect detainee that his mother would be sexually assaulted in front of him, though the interrogator denied making such a threat.

The report examined CIA treatment of terror detainees following the terror attacks of September 11 2001. It has been declassified as part of a lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union.
