Iran scientist alleges US torture

Amiri, back in Iran, says he was abducted and held against his will for 14 months in the US.

    The Iranian scientist who says he was kidnapped by US agents over information on Iran's nuclear programme, has returned to his home country.

    Shahram Amiri claims he was drugged and abducted by US agents during a Hajj pilgrimmage to Saudi Arabia and flown to the United States against his will.

    He also says he was tortured physically and psychologically during the 14 months he  was held for interrogation in the US.

    But that contradicts an earlier Youtube posting in which he said he was in the US of his own free will.

    Al Jazeera's Alireza Ronaghi reports from Tehran.
