British Foreign Secretary Robin Cook is launching a book designed to help torture victims bring their attackers to justice. The "Torture Reporting Handbook" tells victims and human rights groups how to collect evidence in a form most likely to be admissible in court. Mr. Cook, who pledged to bring an ethical dimension to his job as foreign secretary, said he hoped the book would result in more convictions. The book has been praised by campaign groups.

Guest:

  • Camille Giffard, Author, "The Torture Reporting Handbook" Human Rights Center, University of Essex, United Kingdom.
