A US hunger striker was force fed through a nasal tube in front of the White House Friday, in a protest aimed at showing the procedure used at Guantanamo is "torture."
Weakened by his 61-day fast, Andres Thomas Conteris sat on a chair outside the White House, clad in an orange uniform, as a nutritional substance flowed through the tube into his stomach.
"It feels like endless agony," Conteris said. "Any motion is painful, it feels like I'm drowning."
