The United Nations is considering a complaint that an Army private being held in Quantico, Va., suspected of giving classified documents to WikiLeaks, is being mistreated.
The UN office for torture issues in Geneva says it received a complaint from one of Pfc. Bradley Manning's supporters alleging conditions in the Marine Corps brig in Quantico amount to torture.
The Pentagon denies mistreating Manning. And a spokesman for the Marine Corps says the military is keeping Manning safe, secure and ready for trial.
Manning supporters are also calling on the base commander to relax conditions that include confinement 23 hours a day in a one-person cell.
