Twitter account linked to Iran leader hits out over US torture report

World Bulletin/News Desk

A Twitter account associated with Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamanei said on Wednesday that a U.S. Senate report into CIA torture showed the U.S. government was a "symbol of tyranny against humanity".

In a message bearing the hashtag "TortureReport", used to connect comments on the topic on the social media platform, the account said: "Today, U.S. govt. is symbol of tyranny against humanity".

Another message read: "Look at how humanity is being treated by dominant powers with flashy propaganda and in the name of human rights, democracy and freedom".

A later message read: "They claim they've a prideful nation; US govts. debased & misguided their people who aren't aware of many realities."

The U.S. Senate report released on Tuesday said the CIA had misled the White House and public about its torture of detainees after the Sept. 11 attacks and had acted more brutally and pervasively than it acknowledged.
