NAIROBI, Kenya — In a new report four terror suspects charged with killing 76 people watching the World Cup soccer final in 2010 claim they were physically abused during interrogation by FBI agents.

The report released Tuesday by the Open Society Justice Initiative said the four suspects claimed men who identified themselves as FBI beat them up during questioning between 2010 and 2011 in Uganda.

Selemi Hijar Nyamandondo alleges that a man who described himself as an FBI officer hit him in the eye, causing his glasses to break, his eye to bleed, and making him collapse on the ground.

Human rights groups say Kenya and Tanzania circumvented their extradition laws to illegally deport suspects to Uganda where they could be interrogated at length by local and foreign agents without scrutiny.
