Amnesty calls on Irish government to reopen 'hooded men' case
Amnesty International has called on the Irish government to reopen a landmark case against the UK government over the so-called "hooded men".
They are a group subjected to what the Army called "deep interrogation" in Northern Ireland in 1971.
In 1978, the European Court found that the UK had carried out inhuman and degrading treatment - not torture,.
Amnesty has said new information from the UK national archives suggests crucial evidence had been withheld.
BBC News NI Home Affairs Correspondent Vincent Kearney reports.
