Two Britons held at the US base at Guantanamo Bay have sent an open letter to President Bush detailing the alleged abuse they suffered there.
Shafiq Rasul and Asif Iqbal, held at the base for more than two years, said they were deliberately humiliated.

Guards used strobe lights, dogs and loud music - particularly from US rapper Eminem - to extract information, they allege.

US military officials at Guantanamo have denied the accusations.

"We have never applied any of those techniques," the Associated Press quoted a spokesman for the US mission at Guantanamo as saying.

Mr Rasul and Mr Iqbal said detainees often were forced to go naked as punishment for minor offences, even when female guards were present.

They also said they were forced to squat with their hands chained between their legs for hours during questioning.

"Soldiers told us 'We can do anything we want'," the men said in the open letter to Mr Bush and members of the Senate Armed Services Committee.
