Malaysian terror suspects were threatened that they would be handed over to the US authorities at the Guantanamo Bay detention centre where they would face 'severe torture, a Human Rights Watch report says.

The 57-page report details widespread abuse and humiliation of suspects being held without trial under national security laws in Malaysia. Malaysia is a close US ally in the war on terrorism and has shared intelligence with Washington about Al Qaeda operations in Southeast Asia.
