UK: New Government human rights report - Amnesty International reaction

'Some good Foreign Office human rights work has effectively been overshadowed by an apparent government unwillingness to stand up to the US on key issues like the treatment of prisoners in Guantanamo Bay and Iraq, and wrecking actions against the International Criminal Court.
