Former internees claim 'new evidence' of Army torture

A group, known as the Hooded Men, have claimed that new evidence has emerged that proves the UK government subjected them to torture in Northern Ireland.

The European Court found the British government subjected them to inhumane and degrading treatment after they were arrested during internment 40 years ago.

The men have always maintained they were tortured and want the Irish government to take their case back to Europe.
