Turkish security forces regularly coerce doctors to conceal physical findings of torture among detainees, a report released by a United States medical group said.

"The Turkish government permits widespread and systematic torture of detainees in Turkey and physicians are coerced to become the unwilling accomplices of the government in this practice," the Boston-based Physicians for Human Rights said in a report. It urged Turkey to prohibit incommunicado detention, provide detainees with prompt medical examinations and train security officials to respect human rights. Reuter - Ankara
