(AP Photo/Anjum Naveed) (Newser) – Five Americans being detained in Pakistan shouted out to passing reporters that they are being tortured. The five, being held on suspicion of ploting terror attacks in Pakistan, yelled out in unison as they were being driven from a Pakistani court. Authorities denied the men were being mistreated. The men, between the ages of 19 and 25, vanished from their Washington area homes in November. One reportedly left behind video saying Muslims must be defended.
