A former prisoner reports that prisoners were tortured with music from the Irish boyband Westlife during interrogation in the US.
In a new US report it is claimed that the group's song "My Love" has been used during CIA interrogation.
The Boyband's song "My Love" from 2000 was played at deafening volume, mixed with heavy metal music, writes the BBC.
- The music was constantly on to destroy the prisoners' senses, says former prisoner Suleiman Abdullah.
It comes from a report by the American Civil Liberties Union, which claims that the music was used as torture during interrogation.
In addition, he was flushed with ice-cold water, beaten and thrown into walls, the report said.
- Exposure to music in such a way, is not only uncomfortable, but also detrimental because the brain is not able to cope with it and becomes exhausted, says the British psychologist Phillip Johnson.
Suleiman Abdullah is one of those who are suing psychologists who assisted the CIA in the design of new interrogation techniques in the wake of the terrorist attack in New York on 11 September 2001.
Probably he has a solid case. Westlife is intolerable. Pure torture.
The police played this, which had the criminals to complain about torture
