CIA report: 'Brutal' interrogation tactics by the numbers

The CIA carried out "brutal" interrogations of al-Qaeda suspects in the years after the 9/11 attacks on the US, a US Senate report has said.

The summary of the report, compiled by Democrats on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said the CIA had misled Americans about what it was doing.

The information the CIA collected this way failed to secure information that foiled any threats, the report said.

In a statement, the CIA insisted the interrogations had helped save lives. Many Republicans have also condemned the report as a flawed account of the response to the attacks on 11 September, 2001.

Here's a look at the key numbers in the Senate report.
