An Amnesty International report alleges that people detained by the Syrian authorities are being systematically and routinely tortured.

The rights group says officials are using techniques including suspending and then beating detainees with fists and rifle butts.

Many of those from whom Amnesty gathered testimony said children were among the torture victims.

However, Syrian authorities have denied torturing opponents of the government.
