Bali bombing suspect 'tortured'

The man accused of masterminding the Bali bombings has alleged that police interrogators tortured him into confessing a role in the attacks.

Mukhlas is one of several suspects currently on trial charged with involvement in the attacks in the Indonesian tourist resort last October, which killed 202 people.
